Today Father Martin presided at the Concelebrated Parish Mass whilst Father Mervyn preached on the Gospel of the day. He pointed out that the Sadducees didn’t believe in life after death and it was pointed out to them, by Jesus, that God was a God of the living not of the dead: the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. November was the month when we observed All Saints, and All Souls and we also we remembered those who had died as a result of two world wars and many other conflicts since. He mentioned that eternal life was now with the Church Triumphant, the Church Expectant and the Church Militant “here on earth” – all one church worshipping the one true God, a God of the living not the dead.
