All Saints Day Reflections and Prayer
All Saints Day is a special time to think on why some people are known as saints. Perhaps with this holy season upon us it is time to pick a virtue that is saintly that we can work on and put to use during the winter season, such as showing kindness so that children or the elderly receive some special tender loving care.
All Saints Day Prayer
"Saints of old, saints today
Inspire us in your blessed ways.
That we will strive to be our best
In ways you know
Will meet life's test.
Daily we will work and strive
As humans we will be alive.
And every act and thought we have
Will bring us closer
To our best."
Striving and being fully alive to the Divine within sets the saints a part. They literally shine with acts sublime and divine. This is the kind of life to emulate day by day, little bits adding up to the whole. And the blessed reward coming back moment by moment as happiness and harmony in our lives.
Emulating the saints ways is a win - win proposition. Just as with all our acts in life we pull out the direct results of what we put in. What more can we ask?
