Thanksgiving Eve

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday, I thought today’s responsorial Psalm was very appropriate:

Great and wonderful are all your works, Lord, mighty God!

Thanksgiving is traditionally a day for families and togetherness.  I’m sad to see that many national retailers have decided to violate the sanctity of the day, making their employees work and enticing shoppers to leave home and hearth in hopes of scoring a deal on a flat-screen TV.

Hopefully, you won’t be tempted.  Speaking from experience I promise you whatever deals they offer tomorrow will be repeated between now and Christmas.  In fact, that flat-screen may be even cheaper as Christmas draws near and hundreds of them are still sitting on the shelves.

So, as you cook and clean in preparation for the big event, in between the parades and the big games, before you spread all the newspaper ads out on the family room floor to plan your “black Friday” assault with the precision of a General Patton, I hope you can find a few minutes to reflect on the words above.

Great and wonderful are all your works, Lord, mighty God!


Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!
