Thanksgiving Day

Sirach 50: 22-24; 1 Corinthians 1: 3-9; Luke 17: 11-19
On this day, let us acknowledge that all we have comes from God. Whatever blessings we have obtained in life are gifts from our Father's bounty. We did nothing to deserve them, so we lose nothing by sharing them. Our true wealth and poverty lies not in material things, but in the strength of our faith in our Brother Jesus. This is a treasure that cannot be stolen, foreclosed upon, or repossessed. So on this day, let us give thanks to a God who loves us beyond measure, and who eagerly awaits our return home. Have a happy and joyous Thanksgiving!
