The rich blessings God intends for the saints
Collect: All Saints’ Day
Almighty God, you have knit together your elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of your Son communion and fellowship in the mystical body of your Son Christ our Lord: Give us grace so to follow your blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living, that we may come to those ineffable joys that you have prepared for those who truly love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
Revelation 7:9-17 . . . . A vision that assures us of God’s ultimate triumph over evil, sadness and death, a victory to be shared with the faithful.
Psalm 34:1-10, 22 . . . . the “flavor” of the divine presence can only be known by its taste.
1 John 3:1-3 . . . , We are God’ children now, full participants in God’s kingdom.
Matthew 5:1-12 . . . . the blessings that are ours as we depend on God and work for the kingdom.
