Thanksgiving Day, 22 Nov 2012

Click here to download and listen to this homily (14 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. "Gratitude presupposes that we know our utter poverty--that without God we are nothing. Knowing this, in a wholesome fear of him, we should prostrate ourselves in worship of him, and in thanks to him from whom we draw life. Knowledge of our utter destitution, and the wholesome fear God, would bring to our barren hearts a rich flow of grace and love. This would make us whole again, and fruitful in his sight. Gratitude would come to dwell in us." -Catherine de Hueck Doherty

Readings: Sirach 50:22-24; Psalm 138; 1 Corinthians 1:3-9; Luke 17:11-19
