Thanksgiving Message from Father Gregory
Each year at Thanksgiving, we are reminded of the great blessings that we have received as a nation, and the spiritual foundation on which our country’s ideals and values has been laid. After an election cycle which was particularly contentious and divisive, this Thanksgiving affords us the opportunity to reach deeper into that spiritual legacy. May we make our own, the Church’s prayer for Thanksgiving Day:
“Father, all-powerful, your gifts of love are countless
and your goodness infinite.
On Thanksgiving Day we come before you
With gratitude for your kindness:
Open our hearts to concern for our fellow men and women,
So that we may share your gifts in loving service.”
Be assured of the prayers of all the monks for you and your families this Thanksgiving Day.
Yours in the Lord,
Father Gregory Mohrman, O.S.B.
