Giving thanks, with Mass, for benefactors and donors

This morning we had a Norman Rockwell like Mass at St. Mary’s. It would have been nice to have a couple photos. We used the texts for the day, of course.

On civil holidays I also like to add Archbishop Carroll’s Prayer for Civil Authorities… which we need to pray often right now.

Since I was able to take my own intention, I said Mass for all my benefactors and donors here. I am grateful for all your support and I remember you in daily prayers and occasional Mass intentions.

    This morning Father added the Collect from the Votive Mass of Thanksgiving to that of the feast of St. Sylvester, Abbot. He also preached a sermon reminding us about (among other things) the meaning of the Greek word ??????????.

    Happy Thanksgiving and blessings to you, Fr. Z, and to Zed-Heads near and far.

    Well, the Greek εύχαριστία displayed in the preview without my having to enter all the Unicode… really it did… ah well!

    Never heard of “St. Norman Rockwell” although a liturgical calendar I was given a few years ago did include the feast day of “St. Stephen King”! I got quite a chuckle out of it. (The following year they remembered the comma!)

  6. Thank you so much, Father Z! That means a great deal. I’m tucking you in to my Rosary tight no, in as special way.

    Father, you are in my daily prayers as well. I am so blessed to have a mass said for me! It gives me hope for this poor wretched sinner. Thank you.
