28th Sunday in Ordinary Time
This Thanksgiving,
as we gather to celebrate,
let us reflect on, and give thanks for, our many blessings.
And as we gather to celebrate the Eucharist,
let us also pause to consider where we feel in need.
May we give thanks for those needs and for the opportunity they offer us
to discover that, in God’s love,
we truly have all that we need.
