Autumn is the season of the feasts of All Saints and All Souls. The following photos, taken during the late summer and fall, put on display the veneration of Catholics in the Archdiocese of Chicago for those who are saints, and show the efforts of those who are striving to become holy.
Ann Rangel, a parishioner at St. Lawrence O'Toole in Matteson, walks through rows of crosses representing babies killed by abortion near Governors Highway on Sept. 29. Members of the parish's pro-life committee used donations from parishioners to purchase the crosses, which they set to kick-off Respect Life Month.
