2 Thessalonians 2:13-17 – New Revised Standard Version

13 But we must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters beloved by the Lord, because God chose you as the first fruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through belief in the truth.

14 For this purpose he called you through our gospel, so that you may obtain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15 So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by our letter.

16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope,

17 comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.

You don’t have to be a superstar to have an impact on faith and human life. Our saints show us how in large and small ways we enrich the faith and future of others.

This is a day of grateful reflection on the saints in history and in the church, who steadily walked the pathway to God. We remember the influence of those who nurtured our faith, work and values. Most of us will not be in the spiritual spotlight but we could be a footnote in the church’s history. God needs good footnotes. We can play the role of supporting actor/actress that points the way to God.
