If we are thankful, we have no need of pride. Let us give thanks for the Lord's Blessings

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa questions all the rhetoric of "pride" that permeates our culture and masquerades the fact that if we are proud, then we are left to our own miserable selves. But if we are humble, and credit all that we have and are to God, then we are truly giving back to our Creator all that He has given us and we gain so much more. As Pat wisely puts it, "If we have pride, we have no reason to be thankful. If we are thankful, we have no need of pride." For Pat's column Pride or Thanksgiving?, click on VIEW FROM THE PEW

Pride or Thanksgiving?


    This weekend we celebrate on Wednesday the Feast of Saint Andrew Dung-Lac and his martyred companions of Vietnam, with Thursday's special Thanksgiving Mass in the US and Ordinary Time everywhere else for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, shared with the Observance of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Saturday to finish off the Liturgical Year. We begin the new year with the First Sunday of Advent. For the liturgies, readings, meditations and vignettes on these feasts, click on THANKSGIVING WEEKEND LITURGY
