On this feast of Christ the King and final day of the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend, I want to pause to extend Eucharistic (thanksgiving) wishes and blessings to all my friends in the blogosphere and thank you for the graces and blessings you share and the witness you give here in the blogosphere and in your daily lives.
Amidst a world ripe in struggle, conflict, and war, there is still much for which we should be and are grateful, most of all for the new opportunities that each new day brings to live the Gospel and share Jesus with others.
Canticle of Thanksgiving
God, my God and Creator,
you are the source of all life and love.
Thank you for the family into which you lifed me,
the friends with which you surround me,
the community with which you bless me,
the parish with which you sustain me,
the food with which you nourish me,
the work with which you challenge me,
the world with which you gift me,
the Body and Blood by which You saved me,
the daily opportunities through which you redeem me.
I praise, thank, and bless you, God,
for the unimaginable riches you have and continue to bestow upon me.
Looking upon Your Holy Face,
in Your Holy Name, I pray,
