Have a Very Blessed All Saints Day

Almighty and everlasting God, we yield unto thee most high Praise and hearty thanks for the wonderful grace and virtue declared in all thy saints, who have been the chosen vessels of thy grace, and the lights of the world in their several generations:

for Abraham, the father of believers, and Sarah his wife;

for Moses the lawgiver, and Aaron the priest;

for Miriam and Joshua, Deborah and Gideon, and Samuel with Hannah his mother, and for all the holy patriarchs;

for Isaiah and all the prophets;

for the Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ our Lord and God;

for Peter and Paul and all the apostles;

for Mary and Martha, and Mary Magdalene;

for Stephen, the first martyr, and for all the martyrs;

and for all other thy righteous servants, known to us and unknown;

And we beseech thee that, rejoicing in their fellowship, encouraged by their examples, and aided by their prayers,we also may run with steadfastness the race that is set before us, and finish our course in faith;and that at the day of the general resurrection, we, with all those who are of the mystical body of thy Son, may be set on his right hand, and hear that his most joyful voice:

“Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”

Grant this, O Father, for the sake of the same thy Son Jesus Christ, our only Mediator and Advocate. AMEN.

Fr. Wayne
