Dear fellow saints!

The celebration of the Solemnity of All Saints gives us an opportunity to contemplate in a special the plan that God has for each one of us. He calls us to share His holiness and shows us the journey we are to make while still in the world which will lead us to the fulfillment of all our desires. God completes the good work that He has started in us all. Our ancestors in faith (the saints) challenge us to let the grace of God transform us while living holy lives here on earth.

The word of God for us on the 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time A invites us to consider ourselves as a vineyard that has been given a conducive environment and all the necessary conditions so as to produce the necessary fruits. Even if the parable of the landowner and the tenants may draw our first attention to the religious leaders and state leaders who often lack faithfulness in their stewardship, we ought not to use it to point fingers at anybody.
