Click here to download this week’s bulletin. As we approach the end of the liturgical year, we wish to pause and look back to another year of our life past and gone.

First things that come to my mind are the many blessings that the good Lord has showered on me, my community, my family members, and my many friends. God in his infinite love has provided me with all that I need and more. I have been blessed with good health, good shelter, good food, and a good life. It is a happy coincidence that America celebrates at this time the feast of Thanksgiving.

We are called as individuals and as a nation to count our blessings and be thankful. So many in today’s world are not able to satisfy their basic needs. They lack food, drinkable water, medicine, and opportunities for educating themselves. Are we grateful people if we close our eyes on those who suffer terribly because they cannot have what we waste? Can God receive our prayer when we ignore the pains of our brothers and sisters who cannot provide for themselves, and their loved ones?

If we wish to honor God, first we must open our hearts to the needs of all His children in order to resemble our heavenly Father, who causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Give back to God what God has so generously given to you.
