The Preface for All Saints’

The Preface for the octave of All Saints’ really grabbed me yesterday during Holy Communion.

Who, in the multitude of thy Saints, hast compassed us about with so great a cloud of witnesses, that we, rejoicing in their fellowship, may run with patience the race that is set before us, and, together with them, may receive the crown of glory that fadeth not away.

I’ve continued mediating on it since. It, and the celebration of All Saints’ as a whole, certainly is a good reminder that it isn’t just about me, nor is it just about now.
