Thanksgiving Blessing

Father in Heaven, Creator of all and source of all goodness and love, please look kindly upon us and receive our heartfelt gratitude in this time of giving thanks.

Thank you for all the graces and blessings you have bestowed upon us, spiritual and temporal, our faith and religious heritage. We are grateful for food and shelter, our health, the love we have for one another, our family and friends.

Precious Lord, in your infinite generosity, please grant us continued graces and blessing throughout the coming year. While we walk through the days of this pandemic, grant us strength, patience and protection. In our separation from loved ones, comfort us in these days. Let us be a light to those who are struggling and are in need of your grace. May we never forget that our refuge and hope is in you. Amen.
