Today we recall that we are in the presence of all the saints, those men and women and children who have gone before us in the faith, who have shown us the way by their words and their actions. The Christian faith affirms that for these followers of Christ, “life is changed not ended” and that they continue to be present to us in the “communion of saints.” Having finished the race they were given to run, they are now praying for us, supporting us, and cheering us on as we run the race that has been set before each one of us.
