The Dead are Alive in Christ (#549, All Souls)

Fr. Joel Homilies

Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed. Prayer keeps us in communion with those we love. We help the dead on their journey by our prayers for them. They help us on our journey by their prayers for us. Christ is the vine, and we are branches. We call this the Communion of Saints. Do you wish Christ had taken your loved one by the hand and said, “Be healed?” Our faith tells us that He did.

Point to Ponder: What does death mean to you?

Point to Discuss: Have you ever seen a ghost? Ask a friend that question and see what they have to say.
