Let us honor the lives of saints who've tread the path we are now on, by remembering them on November 1st.
I see this as a time to remember there are others who came before us and through sticking with one or more virtues elevated themselves into an eternal blessed consciousness.
Reflecting on the lives of saints shows us the path through life, though it may be materially difficult at times, has a built in reward in that forever in our meditation we can commune with Peace and Joy.
Remember that by their lives the saints have shown that joy is a quality that bubbles up to fill in the spaces of each moment with peace and contentment, fueling the fires of caring and loving devotion with family, friends, the community of the world.
Prayer in Honor of the Saints
The saints have come before us
To show us how to pray
They tread a path of righteousness
Lived it everyday.
They modeled what it's like to live
For truth, the noble way
To follow this same path
We have the choice ourselves today.
Dear saints, keep us
In your hearts each day
That our needs will be fulfilled -
That we'll learn to pray.
For goodness comes of being good
That example you have shown
Heavenly saints rejoicing above
Pray for us till we come home.
To our heavenly home return
Till we justly return home.
