This week in my faith family, as in many of yours, we will be observing All Saints Sunday. It's a special day, set aside for us to remember the Saints, those who have died in the faith and gone before us to show us the way to the Father.
It is for them that we pray and give thanks this weekend, and as we remember them, we remember that we to are victorious in Christ Jesus.
We give you thanks, our God and Father,
for all who have died in the faith of Christ -
for the memory of their words and deeds
and all they accomplished in their time,
for the joyful hope of reunion with them in the world to come,
and for our communion with them now;
in your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
