Thanksgiving Thoughts

“Give thanks frequently to God for all the benefits He ahs conferred on you, that you may be worthy to receive more.” St. Louis IX, King of France


“One act of thanksgiving, when things to wrong with us, is worth a thousand thanks when things are agreeable to our inclinations.” Blessed John of Avila


“Yea, though I sin each day times seven,
And dare not lift the fearfullest eye to heaven,
Thanks must I give
Because that seven times are not eight or nine,
And that my darkness is all mine,
And that I live
Within this oak-shade one more minute even,
Hearing the winds their Maker magnify.” Coventry Patmore
