Tomorrow night actually Is All Hallows' Eve, meaning holy evening, the vigil ,of the feast of All Saints' day. All-Saints'-day follows on Nov. 1 and All Souls' day on Nov. 2. A1J Saints'-, day is - observed in Roman Catholic, Church of England, Episcopalian, High Lutheran and Eastern' Orthodoxf-churches. It is set aside as a day for honoring saints and Christian martyrs and is a holy, day of obligation in the Catholic church. All.Saints' day.,was. observed to the early church after the cessation of the persecution of Christian martyrs. It was retained in the Church of England and in many Lutheran churches following the Reformation and has largely fallen into disuse in Lutheran churches. The institution of the feast of All Souls was due to Odilo, abbott of Cluny, who ordered it in the Cluniac monasteries -(about 1.000 A,D.) following a vision of souls in purgatory seeking heavenly rest. The practica of interceding for the dead is of great antiquity. Impetus to this practicing-,of graying for the departed was. given byOdilo and - became .practically universal by the end of the 13th century; ~ All Souls' day was abolished by the Church of England but has been revived by the "Anglo-Catholic" church in both, that denomination and the Episcopal church In.
