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.
Dominic Duenas, a parishioner at St. Mary Star of the Sea, joins others on July 17 in venerating Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta's sandals following Mass at St. Procopius Church. Several items belonging to Mother Theresa, including her sandals and a rosary, were in Chicago as part of an international centennial celebration of her birthday.
