PRAYER ON ALL SAINTS' EVE

God of time and of eternity, in love you have given us this festival of All Saints to be our joy and our delight from one generation to the next. This holy evening we open our door to pilgrims, your children all, the lowly, the hungry, the poor in spirit.  May the hospitality we share be for us a taste of the hospitality we will receive when our traveling days are done, and we arrive home in your city of peace, the new and eternal Jerusalem.  On that day all masks will be removed, all falsehood cease.  You will transfigure us in your own image.  We shall be like you, and we shall see you as you are.  Protect us from evil and free us from fear as we keep watch for that day, the glorious day of the Messiah, your Son Jesus, who is Lord forever and ever. Amen.
