All Saints Sunday (Nov 1, 2015)

A.     Introduction:
a)      To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Good morning!
Welcome to Saint Dominic’s Parish Church for the celebration of Sunday Holy Mass.  Today is the first day of November which is traditionally dedicated to commemorating all Christians who have accomplished their mission on earth and who are now living in so loving and so happy a union with God in heaven.
We, though just being on the way to the so much desired kingdom of peace and lasting joy, feel very much encouraged by fixing our gaze on how those holy men and women knew well to facilitate the meeting between their limited human resources and the unlimited power of divine mercy in order to fully collaborate with God’s saving project.
Please all stand for the entrance hymn.    

b)     To the Readings
-          First Reading: Rv 7:2-4.9-14
The Book of Revelation gives a concise report on how the saints deserve their ever-happy life in heaven as follows, “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.”
-          Second Reading: 1 Jn 3:1-3 
Saint John in his First Letter finds a close and strong link between human love and divine love.  God’s love remains the basis and the soul of our human love.  Our human love, in turn, shows the face of God’s love in us.
