On this day we give thanks for those now gone before us whose faith defined their living and their dying. We give thanks for those who loved God and others more than their own lives and who are still mirrors of love and service for us today.
We remember the saints who walk among us over the years, making Your way known in a fractured world, against injustice, prejudice, hatred, evil. We stand with those who sacrifice themselves to bring about your kingdom here on earth.
Loving God, your grace shines in the lives of all the saints. We thank you for their example and their wisdom. Come Holy Spirit, inspire us to be loving and wise in our own time.
St Brigid of Kildare, our Patroness, pray for us!
