Readings for Today

I remember vividly my first trip to Fenway Park. I was seven years old. There was the excitement of seeing Boston for the first time, of seeing Fenway, and of loving all things Red Sox. It is a love that has never left me. And, every time I return to Fenway, that feeling of excitement I had as a little kids returns. I have learned many lessons about the faith life from Fenway and the Red Sox too. As I think of All Saints, I think of a ballpark. A whole crowd of people, tens of thousands of people, all pulling for the same cause. Imagine of that type of unity were applied to the gospel. Imagine how much could be accomplished if we were all pulling together to do the will of God.
