As 2014 year of our Lord draws to a close, and the sacred Season of St. Philip’s (Pre-Nativity) Fast begins, we in the U.S. come again to a peculiar weekend.

Of course, many will spend this day without any thought of God whatsoever; since they don't think of God at other times, why should this day be any different? This is a day for the people of God to delight in, however. We are a Eucharistic people; thanksgiving is our way of life. We are never more truly ourselves than when we are conscious of our dependence upon God, and God's loving providence at work in our lives.
