Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed

Rom 5: 5-11

Hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Indeed, rarely will anyone die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person someone might actually dare to die. But God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us. Much more surely then, now that we have been justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath of God.

For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, much more surely, having been reconciled, will we be saved by his life. But more than that, we even boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

Sit in Solidarity

There have been times where most of us have been called to sit with someone in their loss and suffering. This has always been very difficult for me, because there is a desire to say the perfect rational thing that will alleviate all the pain and suffering of the person I am sitting with. I have yet to find a phrase that does this. And at times the searching for this phrase brings not hope, but disappointment. I have been asked to sit in solidarity, not fix the problem of the pain and absence.

I have found St. Paul’s assurance that “the love of God has been poured into our hearts,” to be an important reminder on this feast of All Souls when I am called upon to sit with those who mourn. It is the Love of God I should rely on, not words or phrases. The truth is that comforting those around me is an act of the heart, not a cerebral one.

—Griffin Knipp serves as Campus Minister and Coordinator of Student Life at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Milwaukee WI.

Prayer

Holy God, you are the glory of believers and the life of the just.
Your Son Jesus redeemed us by dying and rising to life again.
Since our departed brothers and sisters believed in the mystery of the resurrection, let them now share the joys and blessings of the life to come.
We ask this through Christ our Risen Lord. Amen.

—from the Roman Sacramentary
