Happy All Souls and All Saints Days

We pray in Thanksgiving for all those we have been blessed with knowing and have gone before us. May the Gates of Heaven be open to the Souls waiting for entrance through these Heavenly Gates.  As we enter into the days of preperation for the Holidays take time to stop and thank the Lord for all our blessings in the past year.  Each of us has so much to be thankful for.
If today we were able to eat, If today we have a shirt on our back and If today we know where we will lay our head for shelter then we have much to be THANKFUL for.  Let us not forget those who do not share in these basic comforts. 
Could we leave our homes and live like Francis did?  Could we beg for our food?
Could we dance in the woods and praise God for the Sun and the birds?  We pray that we will grow in our prayer life, in our love, in our spirit of giving and caring and in gratitude for all that the Lord has blessed us with. May we spread the Spirit of St. Francis through living the Gospel messages by our actions and using words if need be.
