All Saints Day is a special day. It’s one of those days where I feel a “thinner veil,” so to speak, between us and heaven. This week at Eucharist, we concluded a litany in remembrance of the faithful departed by praying “may their souls and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.” For me personally, the departed souls I pray for are my grandparents, and a few older friends that were positive influences on me growing up. But I also trust that prayers go both ways. I like to think that all the saints, from all time, are praying for us too. Hopefully today, all of them will join us to pray mightily for our country, for the elections, and for all those suffering from this past week’s devastating storm.
