Gospel Reflection for Sunday 1st November

1st November 2020

Matthew 5:1-12

All Saints Day

Today is the Feast of All Saints – a day we pause and remember all the Saints in heaven, not just those well-known Saints, but those who we knew to be saints in their own way too. Ultimately Jesus calls us all to be Saints in our own lives each day.

The Beatitudes we hear today are not a list of do’s and don’ts, but rather ways of life. Jesus is calling us to do good by being peace-loving, merciful, pure of heart, and meek, in our thoughts, words and actions. In this way we are living out our calling to be saints to others.

It’s not an easy challenge Jesus sets us, but if we truly reflect and draw inspiration from and pray to the Saints we’ve heard about and know, we too can be faithful followers of Jesus and share his love with others.
