To be a Catholic is to celebrate. this week-end we celebrate all souls that are united to God. They are in in HIM and that is why they are saints and we are so privileged to commune with them.
this week-ends readings:
1st Reading: People will gather, a great multitude, from all nations, race people and tongue. So it is not exclusive to any rather open to all.
2nd Reading: We are God’s children. No matter how different we are.
Gospel: Beatitudes: the definition of a saint.
My thoughts: could we be different and yet find our way to heaven? Do people of different faith, race, religion, sexual orientation…. will they find their way to heaven? Dec 08 we begin the year of Mercy. How merciful we ought to be to go to heaven?
Please read Mathew 13:24-30 parable of the weeds
