Pictures for All Saints Day (1 November)


This is a small selection of free-use illustrations, photographs or images based on the readings and prayers/propers in the Roman Catholic lectionary for All Saints Day (1 November) Year B.  It is part of the Lectionary Art Series.

Popular culture has a great many images associated with Halloween - many which have their origins in the fact that it is "All Hallows Eve".   Many are not suited to prayer/church use - but some are, particular ones focussing on light in darkness / sacred places.

See Hymn Suggestions for this Sunday for more information about the readings and seasonal notes about this day, and links to other weeks.
