Today is about giving thanks for the great gifts that God has graced us with (even those family members we might not necessarily like. Ha!)
Seriously though, the act of getting together with loved ones under the same roof to give thanks truly transcends all divisions and barriers. We share a common meal with each other and thank God for the abundant blessings he has given to us. And he has truly given us many things to be thankful for, especially the gift of life. Today, the key is to give thanks, ultimately.

In the same vein, I am thankful for my Catholic faith. Below are some of the many reasons why I am thankful to be Catholic.
