31st Sunday in Ordinary Time Do you ever discuss heroes with your family, identifying by name and reason the people you consider to be good role models and a positive influence on others? It’s a way to point out that people live the values you teach all the time and you can encourage kids to imitate great people. Every day, people all around us do extraordinary things in ordinary circumstances. They help others, make sacrifices, do above average work and go beyond the call of duty. These are the people we recognize and pray for on All Souls Day. I often think about the people who made a difference in my life, especially those I call the friends of my youth. These are the neighbors who looked after me, the teachers who instructed me, the volunteers who built the school, added a library, gave us a playground, those who taught us our faith, ran our Scout troops, coached our teams and so much more. Their memory challenges me still to look for and respond to the opportunities to serve others. In my life now, I must pass on the gifts that were given to me—the gifts of faith, of love, of service and of selflessness. All Souls is not just an abstract idea for a holy day; it celebrates real people who made a difference in my life and I can only repay them by making a difference in someone else’s. May they rest in peace.
