All Saints and All Souls
This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of All the Saints. “The ultimate object of Veneration of the Saints is the glory of God and our own sanctification. We try to imitate the virtue of those who were pre-eminent disciples of the Lord” (Adapted from the Directory of Popular Piety and the Liturgy).
On all Souls Day (2nd November) we honour the memory of our Dead, as has been done from the very earliest days of the Christian religion.
The following prayer from the Order of Christian Funerals will help us to keep both Feasts in mind:
whose days are without end
and whose mercies beyond counting,
keep us mindful
that life is short and the hour of death unknown.
Let your Spirit guide our days on earth
in the ways of holiness and justice,
that we may serve you
in union with the whole Church,
sure in faith, strong in hope, perfect in love.
And when our earthly journey is ended,
lead us rejoicing into your kingdom,
where you live for ever and ever.
Amen. OCF, 332
