Today is All Saints Day, a day to remember the saints and believers in Christ who are passed on and are now with Christ.
I have a list of people, Saints, who have lived lives of faith before me, and have gone on ahead. Today I'm thinking about them, giving thanks for their lives.
It's also the first day in the Celtic new year.
Almighty and Everlasting God,
who dost enkindle the flame of Thy love in the hearts of the saints,
grant unto us the same faith and power of love;
that, as we rejoice in their triumphs
we may profit by their examples, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
