All Saints Day • Heaven is a great place: full of joy, peace, and God’s love, and free of evil and sin. What do you have to do to get to Heaven? Just one little thing: you have to be free of sin. You can’t track any sin into heaven. It’s like head lice – if one person brings it in, everyone will have it.
Being free from sin happens to be impossible for us. So God plants the Holy Spirit into the depths of your heart. Nourish God’s love within your heart and it will grow and fill your heart, mind, and life. You’ll discover that not only are you on your way to Heaven, but you are carrying Heaven everywhere you go. (1 Nov 2018)
Going Deeper: As we adore you, O God, who alone are holy and wonderful in all your Saints, we implore your grace, so that, coming to perfect holiness in the fullness of your love, we may pass from this pilgrim table to the banquet of our heavenly homeland. Through Christ our Lord. (Prayer after Communion from the Mass for All Saints)
