11-01-17 Catholic Daily Mass Quotes

November 1, 2017
(Solemnity of All Saints)
In a vision John had a revelation:  I had a vision of a great multitude, which no one could count, from every nation, race, people, and tongue. They stood before the throne and before the Lamb, wearing white robes and holding palm branches in their hands. They cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation comes from our God, who is seated on the throne, and from the Lamb.” . . .

Then one of the elders spoke up and said to me, “Who are these wearing white robes, and where did they come from?” I said to him, “My lord, you are the one who knows.”  He said to me, “These are the ones who have survived the time of great distress; they have washed their robes and made them white in the Blood of the Lamb.”  Rv_7:2-4,9-14

These are the Saints, beloved!
Blessed are they and we who can be just as much of a Saint as they.  In every Eucharistic meal we partake, we are washing our robes in that same blood.  The blood that Jesus shed for our salvation.  By uniting ourselves with Him in this way, we purify our souls.  Then it’s up to us to keep them clean!  And the best way of doing that is through our good works.  Between the works and the purity, they will know us by our love.

That’s the love of Christ shining through us.

Blessed are the Saints and blessed are we!
