In this episode, we consider the readings for All Saints' Day (Year C in the lectionary cycle): Luke 6:20-31; Ephesians 1:11-23; Psalm 149; Daniel 7:1-3, 15-18.
Fr. Aaron & Marissa discuss Jesus' description of His kingdom in the beatitudes and the glorious imagery of inheritance and the heavenly reality of Christ's rule as described by Paul in Ephesians, depicted in the Psalm, and revealed in Daniel's "alarming" prophetic dreams.

Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
