Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks to the Holy One
Give Thanks because He has given
Jesus Christ His son 
And now let the weak say I am strong
Let the poor say I am rich
Because of what the Lord
Has done for us. 
As we approach Thanksgiving in less than a week let us consider the many blessings that surround us.
We have so much to thank God for and thank those we love. As catechists helping our students “give thanks” in their lives is so important in a world that is thankless and has little time to consider God’s blessings. After all, God is at the root of all our blessings.
3 Ways to Give Thanks
1) Have your students make a Blessings Poster that expresses all the things they can be thankful for.
2) Cease the opportunity over Thanksgiving dinner for everyone to share 3 things they are thankful for.
3) Encourage your students to pray a Litany of Thanksgiving with their families over the holiday weekend (and beyond).
As we approach Thanksgiving 2011 let us give thanks with a grateful heart!
