These lines follow on from today’s reading from the Apocalypse: ‘Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night within his temple; and he who sits upon the throne will shelter them with his presence. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; the sun shall not strike them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb in the midst of the throne will be their shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of living water; and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes’.

We wish you much joy on this day of communion with all the saints, and may God enrich your life with great blessings. May you know the companionship of the saints in your own life’s journey, and feel that they surround you at every moment.
