The Solemnity of All Saints. Catholic Inspiration

Do you want to be a saint? Saints are not passive persons parked on a cloud with a harp; saints are redeemed sinners who have hearts filled with the love of Christ who share that love with joy in Heaven. This is what God calls us to…this is what we are made for! Do you want to be a saint?

Daily Mass: The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls). Catholic Inspiration

Mass Readings – The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls) 

(Note: there are many choices for today; this link offers a few options.)

Today we pray for all who have died, sometimes still grieving their loss, and sometimes smiling as their memory warms our hearts.  What’s more, our prayers are part of the communion we share in Jesus Christ, and we offer them for those who have gone before us…that they might meet us one day in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.  And let the perpetual light shine upon them.

May they rest in peace. Amen.

May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

Mass Readings – The Solemnity of All Saints

When athletes compete in a stadium, the cheering crowd inspires and encourages them to do their best.  In a similar way the saints inspire us with their example – they cheer us on from Heaven – and at the same time remind us that we can join them as we embrace the challenges of this life with our eyes fixed on Jesus…our coach, trainer, medic, and greatest fan.
