Whenever we celebrate All Saints...
...it's like Easter in the fall. I love this feast, its readings, its hymns, its prayers. I love how the holy Evangelists look down at us from the balcony as we read their words in the midst of the congregation. I love how St. Paul gazes steadfastly toward the front of the Church, to the images of Christ. All together, the saints invite us to join them in their steady gaze at the beloved Lamb of God, who has taken away the sin of the world, who alone is THEIR righteousness and ours.
