All You Holy Men and Women, Pray for Us!

Today we keep the festival of your holy city,
the heavenly Jerusalem, our mother.
Around your throne
the saints, our brothers and sisters,
sing your praise forever.
Their glory fills us with joy,
and their communion with us in your church
gives us inspiration and strength
as we hasten on our pilgrimage of faith,
eager to meet them.
With their great company and all the angels
we praise your glory
as we cry out with one voice:

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of power and might,
heaven and earth are filled with your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest!

(Roman Sacramentary, Preface 71 for All Saints Day)

Beautiful service today Jim ... touching homily; loved the way we sang the Litany of the Saints.

We decided exactly where we would like our "faces" hung! LOL
