Thanksgiving Day (US)

1 Cor 1: 3-9

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that has been given you in Christ Jesus, for in every way you have been enriched in him, in speech and knowledge of every kind— just as the testimony of Christ has been strengthened among you— so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful; by him you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Give thanks always

Thanksgiving dinner is about to start. Fork in hand, the smell of turkey in the air, and then: Someone raises a hand, stopping that spoonful of mashed potatoes inches from your mouth.

“Before we eat, let’s go around the table and say one thing we’re thankful for this year.”

The pressure! One thing? From the whole year? Stomachs rumble. You glance around the table, mind scouring the last twelve months for weddings, pregnancies, engagements, big stuff.

A common scenario, no? Thanksgiving is rightly a time of gratitude.

But if Ignatian Spirituality teaches us anything, it teaches us this: God is in all things. Our daily Examen reminds us that it’s not just the big things from the year, but the little things from each day for which we should be grateful. Every day, every moment, is one of gratitude.

“I give thanks to my God always.” Do we live St. Paul’s words?

Prayer

Father all-powerful, your gifts of love are countless and your goodness infinite; as we come before you on Thanksgiving Day with gratitude for your kindness, open our hearts to have concern for every man, woman, and child, so that we may share your gifts in loving service. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
