Giving thanks for all we are and all we have

“This is my body…” breathes the priest as he raises the host to show the world the Body of Christ.

A moment in time repeated all around the world each day bringing grace, healing, hope and salvation to those who present themselves to receive Him.

It is a moment that pulls us up out of the world and into His loving embrace and gives our lives true purpose and meaning.

It is a moment that has the power to heal all divisions if only we were to keep our gaze fixed on Him and not be distracted by the storms of life.

It is a moment that changes who we are, how we act and how we think by uniting us with the One who humbled Himself to be amongst us.

It is a moment to acknowledge that all we have and all we are comes from Him.

This is true Thanksgiving.

And so we pray,


On behalf of Aleteia, we wish you, your family, and friends, a very Blessed, happy and Holy Thanksgiving.
