We have a building from God

“For we know that if our earthly dwelling, a tent, should be destroyed, we have a building from God, a dwelling not made with hands, eternal in heaven.” (2 Cor 5: 1)

Today we celebrate All Souls Day (All the Faithful Departed). Every priest has the privilege of celebrating three Masses, and every Mass has its own readings. Every reading is focused on the same subject—we are beloved children of God, invited to be with Him in heaven. He gave us His Son to redeem us from our sins and sanctified us by the Holy Spirit to bring us Home. “We have a building from God, eternal in heaven,” so never homeless, always expected, always loved and important.

“This is the will of my Father, says the Lord, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
