Giving Thanks for Broccoli and Brussels Sprouts (#750, Thanksgiving Day)

Fr. Joel Homilies Leave a Comment

Thanksgiving Day (USA) • Name one thing you are thankful for…. each of these gifts point to the loving care of God for each of us, His children. We can always choose to be grateful. “Thank God in advance,” said Solanus Casey. St. Therese of Lisieux would thank God even for her faults and failings. Do you give thanks in all things?

Point to Ponder: “I am much happier to have been imperfect than if, upheld by grace, I had been a model of sweetness. It does me so much good to see that Jesus is always just as gentle, just as tender with me. Why does He not scold me?” – St. Therese of Lisieus, I Believe in Love, p. 66.

Point to Discuss: Talk to a friend about 5 things you are really grateful for, and one thing you have a hard time being thankful for.

Point for Action: Thank God for some difficulty in your life.
