All Saints Day, 1 Nov 2011

Click here to download and listen to this homily (14 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Rose of Lima parish in Wrangell, Alaska. Today we celebrate all the Saints who have gone before us into heaven. All Saints Day is especially for all those "un canonized" saints who lived lives of holiness and now enjoy eternal life with God in Heaven. The Saints all received there strength of holiness from Jesus, especially at Mass in the Eucharist. Let us follow their example.

Oh when the Saints, go marching in! Oh when the Saints go marching in! Oh how I long to be in that number! Oh when the Saints go marching in!

Readings: Revelation 7:2-4, 9-14; Psalm 24; 1 John 3:1-3; Matthew 5:1-12a
