Started off Thanksgiving with Mass. It only seems right - on a day of giving thanks - to go straight to the giver of all gifts. The One who owes us nothing, but without whom we wouldn't even exist. The homily was about giving thanks for unmerited gifts; gifts we do not deserve - not the least of which is Jesus, Himself. Others that I would add: family, friends, friendship, faith, forgiveness. Those who lead and instruct us in faith, those who pray for us, those who inspire us. Those whom we can serve. The blessing of being born and living in a country where freedom is all but taken for granted. Employment. Health. Life. Sacraments. Guardian angels. All way more than we deserve. Happy Thanksgiving!

I've always been Catholic, but in recent years my faith has become much more important in my life. Now I'm a "Happy Catholic."
