Communion of Saints

The saint’s path is not

a road of social prestige.

The disciple’s routine does not

scintillate the world.

What is the Church of God?

A living promise of her Founder

to be with her all days

unto the end of time.

“It is of the Holy Spirit

It is the Kingdom of God.

It is His shrine. It is His city. His sanctuary.

It is the union of God’s people.”[1]

It is the union of all those,

who love and believe,

and grace makes them

a Communion of Saints.

They say with Paul

“I have fought the good fight,

I have finished the race, I have kept the faith…

a crown of righteousness…”[2]

The Church has for its heart,

the Sacred Heart of Jesus,

blessing the Communion of Saints

with mercy and compassion.

Regardless of color or ethnicity,

mindless of class or profession,

heedless of age or generation,

Saints magnify God.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
