We are all called to be Saints.....Eucharist by Fr. Jaime

There is hope for all of us. Today, as we celebrate the joy of all the saints in heaven, we can renew our prayer that one day all of us will join them, sharing with them the eternal life that God desires for us. May the saints who have finished their earthly pilgrimage inspire and encourage us even now to live lives of love as brothers and sisters of the one body of the Lord here on earth.

 In a sense the “Communion of Saints” continues tomorrow when we celebrate All Souls.  Our attention will be on all who have actually finished their earthly pilgrimages but in who there still remain some remnants of the power of evil that are blocks to perfect happiness.  There are those who are in what has been called “purgatory.”  But even these “poor souls” know that God’s merciful love is victorious and will be shared eternally when we are all at home in God’s home.
 Jaime was the main celebrant....preached a very touching homily....he is good in sharing his thoughts.....
