A Blessed Thanksgiving

If we had nothing more than the Most Holy Sacfice of the Mass, we would owe God endless gratitude.
When was the last time you thanked your priest for his vocation? When was the last time you showed acts of kindness to him?  When was the last time you prayed for your priests?  When was the last time you asked God for more good and holy priests? 

Our Blessed Mother speaks gratitude to God through her humility, let us imitate the Most Holy Mother of God! The Mother of our priests, Our Mother, Almighty God's Mother.........

My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because He hath regarded the humility of His handmaid: for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because He that is mighty hath done great things to me: and Holy is His name. And His mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear Him. He hath shewed might in His arm: He hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart. He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble. He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich He hath sent empty away. He hath received Israel His servant, being mindful of His mercy. As He spoke to our fathers: to Abraham and to His seed for ever.

"We must be wholly devoted to the Lord." Wholly thankful to God. And completely filled with gratitude and joy for "His Mercy is from generation to generation."

May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving.... and happy hunting :)
