Solemnity of All Saints

November 1, 2022
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Matthew 5:1-12a

Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of All Saints. This celebration doesn’t just include those men and women who have been canonized, but everybody who lives the life of the Lord here and now, and in the kingdom of heaven.

The Gospel reading is from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount and offers an overview of what it takes to be a saint–to participate in the people of God.

It’s important though, to remember that we don’t earn membership in the company of the saints. We become members by responding to the invitation and the capability that Jesus confers on us when we are made part of his community. We might ask ourselves to what extent we are saints, and what that means to us.
