Saints and Stained Glass Windows – The Feast of All Saints
In his homily today at Mass, Fr. Ken Lavarone, OFM, included the story of a third grade girl’s response to the question, “What is a saint?” The little girl answered that saints are the people in the stained glass windows on the walls of the church. The light shines through all of them, spreading bright colors over all of us.
Fr. Ken used this example to remind us that the light of God shines through the lives of the saints, all of them/all of us, both those living in the here and now and those living with God in eternal life. That light brings color and joy, hope and beauty into our lives, through the good times and the hard times.
May the light and love of God shine into your life today and always and may you be, in turn, a window through which God’s light and love shine for others.
