"We do this by remembering the saints of our life. We turn to their stories, and lift up the memories of all of the saints we’ve known in our lives, and even those we haven’t known who have gone before us.
We meet them here at this table and here they are restored to full life, just as we are.
We remember how they lived,
how they found hope,
how they shared grace with others,
and how they passed it on to us.
And somewhere along the way, in these memories or at this table… we find hope that God’s kingdom is not some far off hope, but something that is coming closer to us every day."
