Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • Read the first reading once more. Imagine yourself in this reading. Where are you? Who are you? What do you see and feel?

  • Read the Gospel this weekend and think of who in your life you would call blessed. Where does he/she fit in with today’s Gospel reading? Where do you see yourself fitting in? Where do you want to fit in?

  • Today is the feast of All Saints. What are some of the traditions from your childhood or present day life to celebrate this day? How will you celebrate this year?
