St. Rose Philippine Duchesne

Dedication of the Basilicas of the Apostles Peter and Paul

1st Reading: Dn 12:1-3
At that time, Michael will rise, the Great Commander who defends your people. It shall be a time of anguish as never before, since the nation’s first existed until this very day. Then, all those whose names are written in the book will be saved. Many of those who sleep in the Region of the Dust will awake, some to everlasting life but others to eternal horror and shame. Those who acquired knowledge will shine, like the brilliance of the firmament; those who taught people to be just will shine, like the stars, for all eternity.

The generosity of the poor widow during Sunday’s Gospel is both an inspiration and a challenge to us as we strive to be good stewards of the blessings we have received from the Lord.

As the Lord has been good to us, so too must we be good to others, sharing generously and lovingly with our family, our Church, and the poor.

St. Martin of Tours

1st Reading: 1 K 17:10-16
So Elijah went to Zarephath. On reaching the gate of the town, he saw a widow gathering sticks. He called to her and said, “Bring me a little water in a vessel that I may drink.” As she was going to bring it, he called after her and said, “Bring me also a piece of bread.” But she answered, “As Yahweh your God lives, I have no bread left, but only a handful of flour in a jar and a little oil in a jug. I am just now gathering some sticks so that I may go in and prepare something for myself and my son to eat — and die.”

The apostles, martyrs, doctors, virgins, religious and other holy men and women whose feasts are celebrated through the Church year offer examples to us of how to live so as to bring God’s light into a world that knows all too much darkness.

The Feast of All Saints evokes the memories of the countless women and men of faith who abide with the Lord for all eternity.
