All Saints

birds

For all the Saints …
Who birthed and nurtured,
Mothers and fathers,
Grandfathers and grandmothers,
Aunts, uncles, cousins, friends,
We are grateful.
Alleluia, alleluia!

For all the Saints …
Who loved and cherished,
Husbands, wives, partners,
Friends and lovers,
We are grateful.
Alleluia, alleluia!

For all the Saints …
Who died too soon,
Whose absence pains us still,
We remember with tears,
Aches in our hearts,
And yet, we are grateful.
Alleluia, alleluia.

For all the Saints …
Who taught and mentored,
Teachers and spiritual directors,
Older friends and younger prophets,
Guiding us, inspiring us,
We are grateful.
Alleluia, alleluia!

For all the Saints …
Who watch over us,
Pray for us,
Sit with us,
Guide us,
We are grateful.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
