All Saints: A day to give thanks ...

And to remember those who gave us life
Taught us how to live
Showed us how to love
And touched us and our lives in many special ways

May they rest in peace and rise in glory

Almighty and eternal God,
you have kindled the flame of love in the hearts of the saints:
grant to us the same faith and power of love,
that, as we rejoice in their triumphs,
we may be sustained by their example and fellowship;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
