Dead Sinners, Revised and Edited, All Saints’ Day (C) – November 3, 2019

November 03, 2019

How do you define a saint? Would you know a real-life saint if you met one?

Words fail. Stand at the edge of the Grand Canyon. Feel the wind rising off the canyon walls. See the light dappling in the crevices of the great chasm. Then try to describe this in words.
