Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls Day)

November 2, 2011


At the heart of who we are is a desire for immortality – not to live in this life forever, but knowing that once this life has faded, we will be remembered.

We want to know that what we did with this life made a difference.  Jesus of course, is the ultimate example of this.  No one person has changed the world more profoundly than him.

So what do we learn from his example?

In our Gospel, Jesus tells us that it is not His will that was important, but the will of the Father.  This is what the Church offers our young people – though I rarely think anyone understands it.
