All Saints solemnity
Matthew 5: 1-12a
O LORD HELP ME BE IN THAT NUMBER!
“Lord, I want to be in that number … ” How many arewetalkingabout here? Just how big is ‘that number’? And will we be in it? I don’t know if there’s a cap on that number, but if there is, in the course of our lives, you and I have not been kept in the dark about the basis on which it will be decided. It’s no secret. It has to do with whether we were poor in spirit, meek and hungry for righteousness, merciful and pure in heart and peaceable. i.e ., if we lived the life of the beatitudes. “Oh when the saints go marching in … ” Oh Lord, I want to be in that number.
Lord Jesus, help me to be in that number, when the Saints go marching into your Heavenly Kingdom! Amen.
