Brol. David Steindl-Rast has reproduced a litany for the the millenium composed of people who have been guiding stars on our quest for global understanding..“Halloween,” as we call it in English-speaking countries, was originally
meant to be “All Hallows’ Eve,” a time to remember those who have gone
before us and to whom we look up as models for our lives. You may be
thinking of some woman or man, famous or not, who serves as a guiding star
for you. Sister Mary Lou Kownacki, OSB, mentions Mahatma Gandhi, Harriet
Tubman, Anne Frank, Cesar Chavez, Jalal Al-Din Rumi, Rabbi Abraham
Heschel, and many others in her “Litany for the Millennium”:
