Dear Jesus, in reflecting on All Saints
and All Souls Feast Days,
I recall St. Thomas More's prayer,
"Pray for me, as I for thee,
that we may merrily meet in heaven."
Such a joyous desire springs from a trust
in Your love and reminds me that we come
to fulfillment together with others.
Inflame that desire within my heart
and continue to open my spirit to all of Your creation.
— By a Columban Missionary
