                          Verse 3 of the hymn We Are God's Work of Art nicely emphasizes the theme of All Saints Day:   
                   
                                                   We are strangers no longer, we are outcasts no longer,                 
                                                               We are saints in the house of God.

And thanks and adoration.

To ev'ry land and nation,
For in Thy kingdom, Lord divine,
Alone we find salvation.

We pledge our hearts' oblation,
Until before Thy throne we sing,
In endless jubilation.

A beautiful hymn for the most beautiful time!

Welcome to the forums Lemonds!  :D

This place is rather quiet lately but there's plenty to inspire! If you have any inspirational quotes from the saints of the past that are your favorites do share them or comment on them! And if you need any encouragement in devotion just stop by for coffee on that daily life thread and ask for some prayers and encouraging words!
