I get blown away by the concept of Communion of Saints. I’m connected to everyone, living or dead, past, present, or future.
Which is appropriate, as we’re all on the same journey, striving for communion with God.
Our Saints are those who have completed (or will complete) the journey. And I want to be there with them.
But God doesn’t make it easy. He shows the path, but we are created to continually fall away from that path.
And what we’re told in the Bible seems so … insurmountable.
So the Saints give us our example of faith, fallibility, overcoming, and ultimately meeting the goal.
And they’re right with us every moment of every day through this mystical Communion.
I pray that I have the strength to continue this journey to its successful end.
