Today, in the United States on this last Thursday of November, we celebrate Thanksgiving. It is a day reserved for the people of our nation to give thanks to Almighty God for his providence and for the many blessings bestowed on our great nation and people. Though not a Catholic holiday, we Catholics know it is our duty and our salvation "always and everywhere" to humbly give thanks to God. We "lift up our hearts" to the Lord, for it is "right and just." We wish also to give thanks to our readers. We know there are 149 countries represented to-date from all of you who follow My Daily Bread: A Reason2bCatholic blog. The top 10 nations represented are: United States, Ireland, United Kingdom, Canada, Philippines, South Africa, Poland, China, Brazil, and Australia. For all of you, spread throughout the globe, we're very grateful. We will continue to pray for you each day. May the Lord bless you, protect you from all evil, and bring you to everlasting life. Amen. Spread the Word! Spread the faith. For words of Wit & Wisdom from the Presidential Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1877, please click on the image. Peace be with you!
