All Saints Today

The saints tell us, remind us, that the best way of living is “for God” – the primacy of God.

Sanctity today, however, would ask: do we live with a dichotomy? Fuga mundi? Or did Jesus show us another way, a wonderfully different way, which Pope Francis is showing somehow? So the saeculum is brining us to another realization of the great mystery of a fascinating God, who we believe was revealed in Jesus Christ: a God who does not flee the world, and who does not think we have to flee the world in order to come to him. True, Jesus relativizes the world radically – see how he warns about the cares of this world – but he does not “flee the world.” He eats. He drinks. But he does not have a place to lay his head, and his kingdom is not of this world.
