The Sunday of All Saints - June 26, 2016

On June 26, we marked the Sunday of All Saints, which is always observed on the Sunday after Pentecost. 
The gift of the Holy Spirit was required to make the Saints holy. 
The Saints should be our role models. 
Today's heroes are the ones who get rich, but even reknown heroes such as Michael Jordan are only mortal
Who picks their bishop, priest, or even a teacher as their hero?
The Saints were merely humble fishermen and tent makers, but God accomplished great things through them - and He can do much with us as well.
We should read about the Saints and used them as examples and role models. 
We can see that even in our time, people who have a strong faith accept martyrdom rather than renounce their faith.  
People who are lukewarm risk being told "I did not know you"
We have to worry about our mundane lives and how to provide for our families - these concerns are all the more urgent for people who are in the military and first responders, who have to worry about their own survival in addition to the mundane
But God is concerned for, and looks after, even the sparrows
He provided for the families of the Apostles, and many of their family members also evangelized
We can have eternity to learn about the Saints
It may divide us even from our families, but we must love Christ above all else, since he gives us life everlasting.
God is glorious in His Saints!
