|November Reflection by Fr Sean|
Reflection for November
The celebration of All Saints on the 1st. of November is a beautiful feast. When I think of this feast I am always reminded of the words of Jesus: "The harvest is great, but the labourers are few." On this feast we celebrate a harvest of all the new saints that have entered the Kingdom of heaven in the past year. These new saints may include people very close to our lives - parents, children, family members, good neighbours. They are all people who in their lives have believed in the Gospel and tried to live at all times in the light of God's word. If our faith allows us to believe that there are countless new saints every year, then we can be more at peace with our loss and our grief and give our loved ones back to God in faith and in acceptance of his will
