Continually Give Thanks



to him who alone does great wonders,
who by his understanding made the heavens,
who spread out the earth upon the waters,

 who made the great lights,
 the sun to govern the day,
the moon and stars to govern the night
Psalm 136 4:9




Bless the God of all, who has done wondrous things on earth;
Who fosters men's growth from their mother's womb, and fashions them according to his will!
May he grant you joy of heart and may peace abide among you;
May his goodness toward us endure … as long as the heavens are above.
Sirach 50 22:24


“Dear children! Today I invite you all to rejoice in the life which God gives you. Little children, rejoice in God, the Creator, because He has created you so wonderfully. Pray that your life be joyful thanksgiving which flows out of your heart like a river of joy. Little children, give thanks unceasingly for all that you possess, for each little gift which God has given you, so that a joyful blessing always comes down from God upon your life. Thank you for having responded to my call. ” BVM August 25, 1988






May a joyful Thanksgiving be yours....

Thanks :) ... particularly for the Sirach passage you included and seeing again the photo. This statue of Christ is particularly meaningful to me and it's good to see it once again and here.
