Let us all rejoice in the Lord as we celebrate this feast day in honor of all the saints; it is a solemnity which causes the Angels to rejoice, and to praise together the Son of God.
V. Rejoice in the Lord, all you righteous; praise befits those who are upright.
V. Ps. 32
Revere the Lord, all you saints of his; for there is no want among those who fear him.
V. Those who seek the Lord shall lack no good thing.
Ps. 33:10; V. 11b
Come unto me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will comfort you.
The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no malicious torment will ever touch them; in the eyes of the unwise they seem to have died; but they are dwelling in peace, alleluia.
Wisdom 3:1, 2, 3
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God; blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called Sons of God; blessed are those who suffer persecution for the sake of justice, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matt. 5:8, 9, 10
