Buona Festa di Ringraziamento

I received the following in an e-mail from the Marians of the Immaculate Conception who run the National Shrine of Divine Mercy at Eden Hill in Stockbridge, MA.
 


In addition there was a link to a reflection entitled How to Give Thanks as Sister Faustina Would. It gives us some good insight as to what we should be thankful to God for. Of course, pre-WW II Poland did not celebrate a Thanksgiving holiday. But Sister Faustina did write many passages on giving thanks to God. & as I said, we can gain much from what she wrote. I recommend following the link for the complete article, but I want to share her canticle of Thanksgiving that is a good prayer for us to use as well:
 
"Thank You, O Holy Trinity, for the vastness of the graces
Which You have lavished upon me unceasingly through life.
My gratitude will intensify as the eternal dawn rises,
When, for the first time, I sing to Your glory
."
(Diary 1286)

 
I pray that no matter what your struggles or problems may be this Thanksgiving Day, God will extend His Divine Mercy to each & every one of you in a special way. May He give you the graces you need as well as meet each & every one of your needs, especially those that are most urgent.
 
May He give you a heart of true gratitude for all His has done for you.
 
Finally, may you experience His Divine Mercy in a special way on this Thanksging Day.
 
 
 
BUONA FESTA di RINGRAZIAMENTO!!!!
