Sofia and all of our contributors at Always Catholic Blog wish our families, friends, readers and colleagues a blessed and holy Thanksgiving.
Act of Thanksgiving for Blessings of the past year
O God, the beginning and the end of all things, Who art always the same, and Whose years fail not, we now, at the close of another year, kneel in adoration before Thee, and offer Thee our deepest thanks for the fatherly care with which Thou has watched over us during the past, for the many times Thou hast protected us from evils of soul and body, and for the numberless blessings, both temporal and spiritual, which Thou hast showered upon us. May it please Thee to accept the homage of our grateful hearts which we offer Thee in union with the infinite thanksgiving of Thy divine Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, Who with Thee liveth and reigneth forever and ever. Amen.
Thanksgiving Day Prayer
Oh, Heavenly Father,
We thank thee for food and remember the hungry.
We thank thee for health and remember the sick.
We thank thee for friends and remember the friendless.
We thank thee for freedom and remember the enslaved.
May these remembrances stir us to service,
That thy gifts to us may be used for others.
May the spirit of Thanksgiving be shared by one and all!
Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving,
and may God Bless you and yours.
P.S.Why not invite a friend who lives alone to share a Thanksgiving meal–
or better yet, call and say, I’m coming to get you
and I’ll see that you get home safely.
Try it this Thanksgiving Day, and
God will surely Bless you…
