A Litany for All Saints Day

Bless the saints.
Bless the saints of the past whose actions echo into the present now. We remember and celebrate the richness we inherit from them. Bless the saints. [toll a bell here]

-observe silence now to remember the saints whose richness you have inherited-

Bless the saints.
Bless the saints who surround us now. We celebrate the connectedness of our communities that bear us up in times of trial, and whose actions both seen and unseen play a part in forming us as children of God. Bless the saints. [toll a bell here]

-observe silence now to reflect on the saints who bless your life now-

Bless the saints.
Bless the saints who will inherit their present from the future we co-create with God. We live with bold hope for the future and commit to preparing a place for future saints through our love and stewardship. Bless the saints. [toll a bell here]

-observe silence now to consider the life you live today and what future you are helping create- 

Bless the saints.
