At last Sunday’s Mass, Father Cole shared how fundamentally and explicitly the thanking at Thanksgiving is thanking God in the intent of our founders.  He referenced George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation from just after the signing of our United States of America Constitution as well as Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation.

The Old Testament testifies to societies and peoples getting too full of themselves and thinking they don’t need God followed by their collapse to dust and despair followed by their crying out to our Creator and returning to reliance on our Creator and communion with our Creator Christ.  Christ in the Old Testament?  Yep!  Christ is eternal.

John 1:1:   In the beginning was the Word: and the Word was with God and the Word was God

Wisdom 13:9:   if they are capable of acquiring enough knowledge to be able to investigate the world, how have they been so slow to find its Master?

Romans 8:28:   We know that by turning everything to their good God co-operates with all those who love him, with all those that he has called according to his purpose.

God calls all.  God calls you.  God wants you in relationship flourishing and helping to contribute to the ongoing Creation of this ever so Gorgeous Creation.

Thanks God for …. and …. and ….. and ….. and …. and …. and …. and …. and ….

I Love You and so does Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit along with Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Your Guardian Angel, Saint Jude, Saint Francis, Saint Therese Lisieux, Saint Anne, all the Holy Angels, all the Holy Saints, and lots more too.
