Commemoration of All Souls

John 6: 37-40

Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day.

This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.”

Love expressed through action

The Jesuits have a famous motto, “finding God in all things.” We are to search for the presence of God in everyone and everything that we encounter in this life. Through all this, God calls within us a deeper response back to him in the form of loving each other more. This is God’s will and desire for us. Doing God’s will consists of listening and being receptive to the callings in our life, to prayerfully discern those callings, and then have the courage and the willingness to be sent out to act. This is our hope in this life in doing his will. All in this life is temporary except for God’s love, which is eternal. So let us love unconditionally as God desires. As St. Ignatius would say, a love expressed not just in words, but in actions. Love in action.

Prayer

Does God have set way of prayer, a way that he expects each of us to follow? I doubt it. I believe some people – lots of people – pray through the witness of their lives, through the work they do, the friendships they have, the love they offer people and receive from people. Since when are words the only acceptable form of prayer?
