Belonging leads to Believing!
Transform November into a Month of Thanksgiving
Very soon Americans will celebrate the Thanksgiving holi- days; a time
where so much is devoted to sumptuous meals highlighted by turkey and
pumpkin pie, traveling to and from the ancestral home, enjoying family,
feasting on leftovers, seeing a Thanksgiving Day parade and watching
Perhaps this November we might allow Thanksgiving to
permeate our lives for more than just a day.
How about the entire month?
For many of us, Thanksgiving Day is so full of activity that there is a
tendency to forget what’s at the heart of Thanksgiving, offering our thanks to
God for the many gifts that have been bestowed upon us. Although
sometimes the reason for the holiday is forgotten in our secular culture
today, good stewards of their life and faith recognize that Thanksgiving
should be directed primarily in God’s direction.
Because the “busyness” of Thanksgiving Day can eas- ily distract us from
slowing down to a pace more suitable to adequately expressing our
gratitude to God, perhaps this November we might allow Thanksgiving
to perme- ate our lives for more than just a day. How about the entire
month? Expressing gratitude is at the heart of good stewardship. So, let
’s dedicate a little time each day in November to giving thanks for our
Gracious and loving God,
as the autumn season continues its
transformation; and the days become shorter,
the earth cooler; as we anticipate joining family
and friends in joyful celebration on
Thanksgiving Day, we pause to give You
thanks and praise for the abundant blessings
You have bestowed upon us:
For life and health, safety and comfort, food
and nourishment, we are sincerely grateful.
Through your Spirit, open our hearts so that we
may be even better stewards of these rich and
unmerited gifts. Show us how to be a blessing
for the poor, sick, lonely and all who suffer.
And help us nurture the gift of faith, revealed to
us by your Son, Jesus Christ, our greatest gift,
who reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one
God forever and ever.
Begin with November 1 and 2, All Saints Day and All Souls Day.
Spend a few minutes each of those days thanking God for all the
people in your life who have gone before you. Then, each day
thereafter, set aside a few minutes to remember all that God has given
you and say “Thank you.”
Take part of a day and walk or hike down a wood- land path. Express
your gratitude for the beauty of God’s autumn creation.
Take a minute each day to thank the people in your life who matter to you.
Tell them you’re thankful for them. Drop someone a note, place a short
phone call or even text them! Telling people you’re thankful for them will
enrich your life as well as theirs.
Take a minute each day to thank the people
in your life who matter to you.
Make a point to attend at least one Mass outside the regular weekend
Masses. Going to Mass on Thanksgiv- ing morning is an excellent way to
enrich that holiday. As a community of faith, we know that giving glory to
God in this way is an important aspect of our communal life of faith.
Transform the month of November into a month of Thanksgiving. If you do,
you will find your celebration of Thanksgiving Day a more richer and fuller
experience than you could have imagined. In fact, you might just discover
that your overall happiness with life improves. May this month of
Thanksgiving be a time when we not only say “Thank You” to God, family
and neighbor, but a time when our hearts draw us much closer to the Lord.
The Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed
(All Souls Day) ~ November 1/2, 2014
In today’s Gospel we envision a crowd following
Jesus, seek- ing him. He invites them to embrace
faith in himself and his Father in heaven and
share in their eternal life. He comes right out and
says that no one who comes will be rejected,
reminding us that even those who feel estranged
from God or the Church are welcomed. Good
stewards know that ev- eryone can be raised up if
they accept the Father’s will, and in turn, use the
gifts God has given them to further Christ’s work.
This promise gives us hope. The stewardship
question is: Are we true seekers of the Lord? Do
we genuinely desire a relationship with Christ?
Are we willing to follow him?
Gratitude is the soul of stewardship
