2019 All Saints Mass

2019 All Saints Day Mass.

2019 All Saints Mass 06 2019 All Saints Mass 29 2019 All Saints Mass 21

 On Friday the 1st of November 2019 the OLOL gathered to celebrate the Eucharist for All Saints Day to honour and praise all our saints. On this day the Church celebrates all the saints: canonized or beatified, and the multitude of those who are in heaven enjoying the beatific vision that are only known to God.   The feast of All Saints should inspire us with tremendous hope. Among the saints in heaven are some whom we have known. All lived on earth lives like our own. They were baptized, marked with the sign of faith, they were faithful to Christ's teaching and they have gone before us to the heavenly home from which they call on us to follow them. 

Dear God, 

We praise you for giving us the glorious example of the Saints. We aspire to meet their company, praising you forever in Heaven. Please help us to follow in their footsteps, and yours, Jesus Christ. Please help us to submit ourselves to Your call, seeking Your order in all things, just as the Saints did. Please help us to commit ourselves to Your glory, and to the service of our neighbours. 

Amen.
