    In Canada, we celebrate Thanksgiving day on Monday, October 12. Most people plan get-togethers on this week-endwith family and friends. It is important to thank people who carefor us, assist us and support us. Speaking words of gratitude toeach other and showing it by our actions deepens and strengthensour relationships.

    On the spiritual level, being grateful and thankful to God isvery important. Psalm 92.1 says it is good to give thanks to theLord, always and for everything. St. Vincent de Paul often saidthe grateful heart doesnt want for anything because you cannotbe both grateful and unhappy at the same time.

    On this Thanksgiving weekend, let us rightly give thanks toGod for the blessings He gives us: family, material goods, ourCatholic faith and parish, health, our citizenship, the forgivenessof sins and other graces from God. The Eucharist is the greatestprayer of thanksgiving we give thanks to the Lord at Mass forall He has done for us especially His saving death andresurrection.

    May we also resolve to be even more committed to show ourgratitude to God by sharing our blessings with others . The 2015Project Advance appeal is an excellent way for us as members ofthe Archdiocese to share Gods gifts to us with others who havereal needs. Our Cathedral parish benefits as well through therebate program which returns offerings to Holy Rosary once ourshare of the Archdiocesan program is covered.

    If you have participated already this year in the ProjectAdvance appeal thank you! If you have not so far, we plan tosend you a letter soon inviting you to make a sacrificial offeringto Project Advance. When you receive it please prayerfullyconsider your participation.

    Wishing you and your family a blessed Thanksgivingweekend . . .

    Fr. Galvon

    Prayer of Thanksgiving

    Almighty God of all mercies,

    Father, we Your unworthy servants,

    Give You most humble and hearty

    thanks for all Your goodness and loving

    kindness to us and to all your people.

    We bless You for our creation,

    preservation, and all blessings of this life.

    But, above all, we thank You for Your

    infinite love in the redemption of the world

    by our Lord Jesus Christ, for the means of

    grace and the hope of glory.

    And, we pray, give us a due sense of all

    Your mercies, that our heart may declare

    Your praise not only with our lips but in our

    lives, by giving ourselves to Your service and

    by walking before You in holiness and

    righteousness all our days;

    Through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom,

    with You and the Holy Spirit, be all honor

    and glory world without end. Amen.
