The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls)

Wisdom 3: 1-9; Romans 6: 3-9; John 6: 37-40
Death is not really death. Our Father desires eternal life for all of her children. That is the "Good News" that Jesus came not just to tell us, but to truly give us. "This is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day." Our Father gave Jesus the task of not losing a single one of us. Can we not trust that our Eternal Brother will make good on this task? On this day of all others, let us say "Amen!"
