hat made special our Halloween celebration was the carving and exchange of pumpkins among our intercommunity novitiate congregations. We carved our pumpkins and exchanged them.  The pumpkin we received as a community was carved by the Daughters of Charity.  For me, its meaning and the way it appears, reminds me of the meaning of the life of Jesus given to us through love, and which we share with our beloved departed. 

The bright light which we see through the pumpkin is itself a symbol of resurrection.

May we always see life, love, light and hope in our Halloween,
All Saints, and
All Souls Celebrations.
