Saints and Sinners, All

Passage: Daniel 7:1-3,Daniel 7:15-18,Ephesians 1:11-23,Luke 6:20-31

“…with angels and archangels and all the company of saints in heaven, we praise Your name and join their unending hymn,” proclaims the presiding minister in the Eucharistic prayer. On the Festival of All Saints we remember with thanksgiving those who have lived and died in the faith. They are the sign of our hope and an image of the glory we shall one day inherit. But even more, they are worshipers with us this day as we sing the praises of the God who brings life out of death.
