Then the Righteous Will Answer Him and Say…
“And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’” (Matthew 25:40)
By Sherry Antonetti

Lord, Lord, when did we see you hungry? When did we see you naked? When did we see you? Where do we see you?

The more accurate reading of our souls is: When do we not see Christ? Where do we not see Christ? Why do we not see Christ?

The answers: whenever we opt to love ourselves more than our neighbor, whenever we opt not to see someone as our neighbor, and whenever we embrace sin, rather than God’s will.

We celebrated All Saints’ Day, the day marking those we know who submitted to God’s will, who loved God deeply enough to trust in his grace, his mercy, his generosity, his providence, his deep abiding love. These are the examples we’re supposed to follow. While each saint is different, there are hallmarks of the interior life of these individuals that reveal a pattern we can imitate.
