All Saints Sunday
Sermon / November 5, 2017

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no man could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits upon the throne, and to the Lamb!”  From The Revelation to St. John the Divine The past Wednesday was the actual All Saints Day, but we are celebrating it today as All Saints Sunday. All Saints Day is a principal feast of the church, which means it’s as important as Christmas and Easter. It’s just not as festive. There are no decorations sold at Walmart for your house, or yard. There are no Happy All Saints Day greeting cards sold by HallMark, or Stampin’ Up for that matter. The Communion of Saints is one of those doctrines that is misunderstood by many who are not of the orthodox catholic faith. In the Nicene Creed, we profess that we believe in the Communion of Saints.
