More than a celebration of an event, we have good reason to celebrate the presence of Jesus whose faithful and risen life is our first and only hope. All Soul’s Day remembers the faithful departed, our beloved dead, sure. But in addition to that, this is a day to honor and worship our living and loving Christ. The risen Lord, his transforming victory over death, his faithful and abiding presence in life, is the One whose love wins the day.
Because he lives, I can face tomorrow; because he lives, all fear is gone. Because I know he holds the future, and life is worth the living, all because He lives. What a victory! What love! Amen.
