All Saints Year B
Today we celebrate God’s goodness in people. God created us and He saw that we are very good. We are called God’s children and indeed we are because God makes us saints.
Throughout the world, in every nation, tribe and language, there are and have been millions of saints of God, people whose lives praise God and who witness to the “blessed” way of life. It is experience of opposition, hostility and frustration that reveals to us just how patient, how understanding, how persevering we are with one another. For many people this testing goes on every day – in war-torn countries, in pressurised lives, in domestic strife. The world needs saints: people who understand that we are all the children of God, and who are prepared to remain faithful to that understanding, no matter how evil the world may be. We honour all these children of God today. But let us remember that we all have the capacity for holiness because we are saints by calling and not by becoming. It is God who calls us to holiness. God sees us as righteous because He sees us through the eyes of His Son.
