"no longer strangers and sojourners"

"So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God."  ~Ephesians 2:19

"Happy is the individual who has Jesus and Mary and all the angels and saints of God as friends in this life, as guides on the way, advisers in doubt, teachers in studies, readers at meals, companions in solitude, associates in conversation, fellow singers in choir, guardians in dangers, attendants in battle, assistants at the last hour, consolers during his agony, advocates at judgment, patrons before God, and welcoming friends in heaven."  ~Thomas à Kempis in Bountiful Goodness

Thank you, dear Lord, for all the marvelous comrades You give us to accompany us on our journey to our heavenly home.  Amen.  Alleluia!
