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.
Sisters and volunteers prepare a meal that will be distributed to those in need following a ceremony to dedicate stamps honoring Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Members of the U.S. Postal Service visited the Missionaries of Charity Soup Kitchen in Chicago for the ceremony on Sept. 8.
