Gratitude

Every good & perfect gift is from on high, descending from the Father of lights, in Whom there is neither variation nor turning shadow. - James 1:17



Gospel Reading - Luke 17:12-19

Gratitude is an Action, Gratitude is in the Scriptures, Gratitude as part of Christian Life

As we go to our Thanksgiving tables, heavy-laden for the feast, we remember this table—the sacred Altar—which presents to us the Eucharist—the Thanksgiving Feast—that has been laid by the Father Himself for His children. As we depart our Thanksgiving tables, satisfied with earthly blessings, we remember that we Christians are called to live a life of Eucharist, a life where all we are & all we have is offered up to God in gratitude, to be transformed by His grace, for the salvation of the whole world.
