Thank you Lord for all the beautiful things we experience in life. Thank you for the water that cleanses, the cloths that bring warmth, the food that nourishes and the home that gives comfort. Thank you for those who love us and care for us. Thank you for the gift of Christ, your son, his Church, his Eucharistic meal, and the promise to be with us always. Thank you for the time you have allotted us and the life you have offered us. Thank you for your infinite love that meets our daily needs. May our love be known for its abundance, its readiness to offer peace, promote justice, and to serve in Jesus’ name. Amen.
