Father Hollywood: Sermon for All Saints

Father Hollywood is a Lutheran Pastor in the New Orleans area.  His sermon for All Saints Day is here.

His preaching is based on today's scripture readings.  Here is an excerpt:

You, brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, you possess the kingdom, right now, even in your poverty of spirit and in your being persecuted for the faith. For these are true marks of the Church. No Christian escapes the sinking suspicion that his own spirit is poor, that he has nothing to offer God in himself but a beggar in rags. Likewise, no Christian escapes persecution for the faith from the hostile world, from the hateful devil, and from his own defiled flesh. And yet, the Lord in His mercy does not withhold the kingdom from you.
