Jesus invites all men and women to be holy and happy

Pili Piñero
November 1st: Solemnity of All Saints
Gospel text
Mt 5:1-12a
Jesus began to teach them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven."
Gospel's Commentary
Today the Church honors all the people who have already crossed the border of time and are "living" in the eternal peace of Heaven. Our ancestors, family and dear friends are there! And there they are waiting for us! But where is "there"? How is this "there"? Saint Paul tells us that no man has ever seen or imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him. - Imagine a world where God is "everything for everyone" (where everyone admires the greatness of God and thinks about others): it is the world of the poor in spirit! (those who don’t just live full of themselves as “self-sufficient ghosts”).
