Who is Included in Solemnity of All Saints or All Saint’s Day?

"The scope of the feast includes all those officially recognised as saints and those whose cause for canonisation has not yet been completed, like Matt Talbot and Cardinal Newman.
But it also includes those whose holy lives were known only to their family, friends or religious communities."

Note: Since the entire original article was published five years ago (and appears again today without updating) at Irish Martyrs were previously beatified, Cardinal Newman is now Blessed John Henry Newman, and Pope John XXIII is now St. John XXIII.
