SOLEMNITY OF ALL SAINTS

Light of truth

“All saints day is a family feast, the saints are close to us, they are our truest brothers and sisters. But, how come? The Gospel says blessed are the poor, whereas the world says blessed are the rich. The Gospel says blessed are the meek, whereas the world says blesses are the arrogant. The Gospel says blessed are the pure, whereas the world says blessed are the clever and the revellers. This way of blessedness, of holiness, seems to lead to defeat. Yet the reading reminds us again the Saints have “palm branches in their hands,” namely, the symbols of victory. They have won, not the world. And they exhort us to choose their side, that of God who is Holy.”
