May have eternal life

“For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day.” (JN 6: 40)

After the Solemnity of All Saints, we celebrate the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed (All Souls), and the Church gives us today a variety of readings connected with the three Masses which every priest can celebrate today as a privilege and … as a sign of the Church’s understanding of the not to be underestimated role of the Holy Mass in support of Souls. “This is the will of my Father,… that everyone… may have eternal life.” Every Mass (not only today) makes present the death of Jesus for our salvation: “I shall raise him on the last day.”

“Come, you who are blessed by my Father; inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” (Gospel Acclamation)
