I love the cool crisp mornings of the fall. Here in Michigan, each morning the leaves on the trees spread a spectacular array of orange, red, yellow and amber colors. Fall is also a reminder to me that soon we will be in the month of November celebrating two great feasts in the liturgical year, All Saint's day and All Souls days.
The Feast of All Saints is a reminder to us of the wonders God has worked through the lives of those who have lived out their discipleship here on earth. And it is a reality check for myself that if I rely on the grace of God, I too will join the ranks of the blessed in heaven at the end of my journey.
