Today is All-Saints Sunday which is observed in some Christian traditions such as the Episcopal Church and for me personally at St. Peters. It’s a time to remember those who have died in the previous year. Remembering these souls who have blessed us in this life is an honorable thing to do. It reminds believers that follow Jesus that their lives are not forgotten. It is good to remember and reflect upon the contributions that our saints have made to make the world a better place.
All Saints’ Day, also known as All Hallows, Day of All the Saints, Solemnity of All Saints, or Feast of All Saints is a solemnity celebrated on 1 November by the Roman Catholic Church and various Protestant denominations.
Today is the first All Saints’ Day in our new church. I remember those who have gone on before and have joined the company of saints who have gone on before. God blessed me with those people and I am deeply grateful for those who have made my life better.
