This has become a special feast for me as I have felt the presence of all the saints so strongly in these last years. I think my guided imagery retreats influenced this presence and it is comforting to know that they are watching over us from heaven and pray for us.
The Second Reading if from the first Letter of John and is very consoling. In it he tells us, "Beloved, we are God's children now; what we shall be has not yet been revealed. We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is."
The Gospel is always the Beatitudes.
Let us take time to really be with our loved ones who have gone before us. And then, we spend tomorrow praying for those who have died and may still need our prayer.
