Gracious God, as we celebrate the national holiday of Thanksgiving we bring you our gratitude for so many things.
The Aquinas Institute of Theology community asks you to continue to breathe your Spirit upon all your people so that we can continue to do your work in the world. Grace us we pray, with a new sense of mystery, a new experience of your presence, a new commitment to your gospel, a new dedication to your kingdom.
May your Spirit plant gratitude in our hearts that impels and energizes us to leave our tables, having been fed by food and relationships, to go and provide for those who lack these precious gifts.
May our work contribute to the coming of your kingdom, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Fr. David G. Caron, OP
