Commemoration of All Souls

Jn 14: 1-6 

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, so that where I am, there you may be also.

And you know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Communion of Saints

In the Apostles Creed we affirm that we believe in the communion of saints. That belief provides the context for today’s solemnity of the commemoration of all the faithful departed. Our faith is not purely an individual matter. Through our baptisms, we become members of the Body of Christ. We are linked by a deep bond now, a bond that extends beyond death. The Gospel passage from John, one of the many possible readings for our liturgical celebration, reminds us that in eternal life we not only live with God, but we also dwell with each other in a heavenly city of many God-prepared dwellings. 

Today’s solemnity is an invitation to appreciate the many people who have touched and blessed us in the course of our lives. Take the time to recall specific people and to thank God for placing them as companions on our journey.

—Fr. Joe Folzenlogen, SJ, is a priest of the Midwest Province residing at Colombiere Jesuit Health Center in Clarkston, Michigan.

 

 

Prayer

God, we thank you for filling our lives with the sacraments of other people who have brought us your love and your grace. Help us to be that kind of sacrament for others. Amen.

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
