Homily for All Saints' Day (Observed)

What a joy to celebrate All Saints' Day! Not only do we thank God for the witness of Christian saints and martyrs of all times and places, but we also remember the faithful departed from the congregation who have taken home during this past year. In the midst of it all, we also hear and receive the blessings of our Lord for the poor in spirit, those who mourn, the meek, those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, etc. (Matthew 5:1-12).

Today's homily for All Saints' Day focused on what it means to "be blessed," not has we may normally think of it in our modern materialistic mindset, but rather as our Lord speaks of it. What does it mean to "be blessed"? It means to receive what our Lord Jesus has done and promises to do for His faithful people. Hear more as you consider "Blessed Are You!"
