Sisters of the Precious Blood
Although Thanksgiving is a civil holiday with no particular religious character, by virtue of the fact that we call to mind those people, things and events for which we are grateful, we are expressing a fundamental human need to acknowledge to someone that we are recipients of things we have no claim to. For Christians, Thanksgiving calls to mind the Eucharist (the very word means thanksgiving in Greek), the gift of Jesus. The Word of God took our humanity and calls us to open our eyes and see the potential we have as daughters and sons of a God who is Love. This Thanksgiving, in the midst of food and football, let's remember the One who has given and forgiven so generously and say "Thanks."
