Patronal Festival Remembrance Day
This week we will join many others across our country and around the world to remember those who gave their lives for the freedom and peace that we enjoy today. While we remember those who have died in past conflict, we must also take the time to remember those who are on the frontlines today. To remember someone, whether they fought in war or not, is a sacred and holy act. In remembering, we keep alive the memories alive in our hearts in a new way. Remembering does not replace the ones who have died, nor does it in some mystical way bring them back to life. But rather those who have died are kept alive in our hearts in a new way. Our relationship with them has changed, they no longer are with us physically, but continue to live in our hearts and lives.

Matthew 5: 1-12 All Saints, November 2, 2014
Today we commemorate All Saints Day and remember the Saints in our lives who have gone before us, and who, are still around with us today. The question is – will we recognize a saint when one passes by? We know of saints and we hear about them often enough. Mother Theresa of Calcutta for her work with the poor and homeless in India for example. What about Martin Luther King Jr, or Princess Diana? Many would argue that these people are saints because of the work that they have done in their lives.
