23rd Sunday after Pentecost 2023
It is very fitting this Sunday falls after the feast of All Saints this year, because in his Epistle St. Paul speaks of following the example of the saints. The lives, example, and instruction of the saints help us ascend to the heights of holiness. We know the value of this devotion when we observe how much it has been attacked by the enemies of the Faith. The Epistle also tells us to avoid bad example, which can so easily corrupt our souls. We must lift each other up with true friendship and love of our neighbor.
