Well, it's almost Thanksgiving and I have so much to thank Our Lord for this year. Of course it's not the Thanksgivings of years ago when I was cooking for a relatively large family. As they grew into adults and married, I was still providing the "feast". It took three days to have everything ready for my children, their husbands and grandchildren. I seldom sat as I was serving them. I enjoyed it all. This year I will be dining with my youngest daughter and her family. I was only asked to prepare one dish and that was a cold potato salad that has been in the family forever. Also there will be a Mass at 8AM that I plan to attend. Will be a great way to start the day.
I am jubilant by all the Catholics that are on the Internet, the News want us to think that there are only a small minority of us. Not so!.
A Blessed Thanksgiving Everybody, I will see you soon.

I posted a video with a little child praying the Our Father. Our Lord said we should become like a little child to enter His kingdom. Sounds like a "tall" order huh? But it isn't! The little child is pure and sin hasn't touched her soul All is not lost for us because we can make amends for the sins we have committed and ask forgiveness to right ourselves with God. If you haven't been to confession in a long while, GO and if you are a fallen away catholic, come back!

In the Bible, the destruction and utter desolation of nations is summed up by saying that the pelican, along with other wild beasts and birds, shall dwell in their place (Isa 34:11; Zep 2:14). Through the psalmist, Christ also called Himself "a pelican of the wilderness" (Psa 102:6). This phrase refers to His rejection by His people and abandonment by His followers during His Passion (Mt 26:56; Lk 55-62; Mk 14:50-52). The "pelican of the wilderness" has also been associated with Christ's fast in the wilderness after His baptism in the River Jordan (Mt 4:1-11).
