Homily 2018 11 22 I’m thankful for…

squanto thanksgiving

  • I’m thankful that the Father sent the Son. I’m thankful for being forgiven.
  • I’m thankful for the prayers people say for me. I’m thankful for cloistered nuns who have teamed up with Jesus to save my soul.
  • I’m thankful for… well… here’s today’s homily on this Thanksgiving Day:

What are you thankful for?

=========

Just to say, this is perhaps a bit of a rough homily for Thanksgiving in that I go on the attack of those who are ever so entitled, who think they are self-sufficient, who are therefore bitter on the one hand and self-righteous on the other hand. An attack! On Thanksgiving. And for the wherewithal to do that I also give thanks. ;-)
