A happy and blessed Thanksgiving Day to all my countrymen!

My heart brims over with gratitude when I think of how much I have to be thankful for: my family and friends, my country, my freedom, all the bounty of creation, my education and career and all the many opportunities I’ve received, and too many other things to name.  Above all, I am so grateful for God and His Church!  Without our Lord, we would have nothing.

I hope it is a lovely day for everybody!  I will be feasting with some of my relatives in my hometown.  Cherishing the long weekend and visiting with friends.  And looking forward to the beautiful Advent season!
