A Thanksgiving Meditation

Thanksgiving_apples_Gods_generosityThe official prayers of the Church on this civic holiday of Thanksgiving speak of gift and freedom: each offered to us from the open hands of God to enable love without risk. God’s gifts are given so that we might be free to love without measure and without cost. Gratitude is a virtue that places us in right relationship with God: to raise our hands in humble thanks we first must let loose our grasp of lesser things. Hands upraised to God Almighty remind us of the source of all that is good and holy, and are hands ready to grasp others’ in generosity or in want, in love or in pain. Gratitude reminds us that our limited lives are no less than a gift from the limitless and beautiful richness of God’s love. We can share in our plenty without fear of loss, for God’s coffers are never emptied. We can ask in our want without fear of rebuke, for God’s generosity is the ultimate source of all. Today, please know the thanksgiving I offer to God for the gift that each of you is to me. May you know God’s choicest blessings today and always. Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving Day!  —Monsignor King
