Serving the Word: 1st November

TUESDAY 1st NOVEMBER 2022

Matthew 5, 1-12:

“Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven”.

The Solemnity of All Saints is one of the most beautiful and joyful feasts in the Christian calendar.

We celebrate all those countless Christians who have passed through this world embodying the

beatitudes that Jesus proclaims to us today.

To all those brothers and sisters of ours who knew how to be poor in spirit, who wept, who suffered, who hungered and thirsted for justice, who were merciful and clean of heart, who worked for peace and who were persecuted simply because they were Christians.

The anonymous saints who are not on the altars.

Surely we know many of them because they have lived with us, humbly collaborating in the construction of the Kingdom of God, without giving themselves any importance, but loving with the effort of their arms and the joy of their hearts. Commend yourself today to all these saints.

They are our brothers and sisters who have gone before us to the common home of our Father. They continue to love us and who also continue to accompany us on our journey of following Jesus.

Good day to you.

Antonio Sanjuan Cmf
