Bless God

“Our Sisters are well fed, well clothed, and even well lodged: do you not think we ought to bless God?”

Saint Theodora, fondly known in the U. S. as Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, wrote this question in one of her many letters. She was grateful for all God provided and accepted what God did not. She believed God provided everything she needed. When things were going well, which wasn’t often, she was quick to “bless God,” or praise the Lord, as we more commonly say today.

Our wish-list is long in this culture of want. Yet, many struggle to put food on the table or afford a safe home for their families. As Thanksgiving approaches, let’s remember those who have less and share what we have. That coat in the back of our closet can become another person’s only source of warmth.
