Saints vigil draws standing-room-only crowds

Each October 31, the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C., is host to standing-room-only crowds of priests, nuns, students and other faithful who come to attend its annual All Saints Vigil. As part of the celebration,  the Dominican brothers choose four out of the 10,000 saints Catholics venerate and invite the public to an evening of special readings, the office of Compline, a procession to the Houses reliquary, and a chanted Litany of the Saints. In a short video hosted by Bob Abernethy on Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, Brother James Cuddy discusses how and why the Dominican House’s All Saints Vigil has become so popular.
