All the saints

The beginning of November for many of us is a special time of remembrance of the dead. We visit cemeteries, light candles, pray for the souls of the dead. Each of us certainly has a loved one “on the other side”. Usually there are people who gave us some goodness during their earthly life. I think we can celebrate this important time in at least one more way. On the Feast of All Saints, remembering our departed, let’s try to look for their traces of holiness in our lives. Let us look in our lives for the good that our deceased relatives and our sisters have done for us, and which still lives in us. May our prayer for the dead also be thanksgiving for the traces of holiness they have left on earth.
