Thanksgiving Day

And now, bless the God of all, who has done wondrous things on earth; Who fosters people’s growth from their mother’s womb, and fashions them according to his will! May he grant you joy of heart and may peace abide among you; May his goodness toward us endure in Israel to deliver us in our days.

We should all praise and bless our Lord and God. He has given us so many good things throughout our lives from life itself to His Divine Mercy. He has helped us in many ways, seen and unseen. We will only truly know how much after we die and behold everything He has done for us. He has given us guardian angels to watch over and protect us. He has given us every opportunity to live our lives in accordance with His Will. He offers us life everlasting as long as we are humble and contrite and do penance with the hope of sinning no more. He grants us joy of heart and peace of mind and spirit if we trust in Him. His Goodness towards us knows no bounds and will deliver us from every evil if we allow Him to lift us up in our times of need.

Do we give God the glory, honor, and praise that He deserves? What can we do in thanksgiving for all God has given us? How can we learn to treat others as God treats us... with love, mercy, and enduring kindness?

O Lord, thank you for all you have done for us.
