All Saints Day

Today is All Saints Day. It is a day to remember all the saints, known and unknown. It is a day to remember the fellowship or spiritual solidarity of all God's people--the communion of all the saints. In many ways, it is a day to remember the inclusive and all encompassing nature of the Kingdom of God.

Here is a prayer for All Saints Day:

Almighty and Everlasting God,
enkindle the flame of your love in the hearts of the saints,
grant to us the same faith and power of love;
that, as we rejoice in their triumphs
we may profit by their examples, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Gothic Missal
