Thanksgiving Prayer

We thank you, Father, for the gift of Jesus your Son who came to our earth and lived in a simple home. We have a greater appreciation of the value and dignity of the human family because he loved and was loved within its shelter.

 

Bless us this day; may we grow in love for each other in our family and so give thanks to you who are the maker of all human families and our abiding peace.

Hurricane Protection Prayer

God, our Father,

Eternal and Omnipotent, Creator and Lord of the Universe, you have set the earth on its foundation and all elements of nature obey your command. You give food to all flesh, cover the heavens with clouds, and provide rain to the earth ─

We humbly beseech you Lord, Most High, to keep us safe from all dangers and to calm all the storms of life that threaten us: especially the attack of whirlwinds and tornadoes, the calamity and destruction of hurricanes, the din and damage of hail storms, the striking of thunderbolts and lightning, and the devastation of floods and tidal waves.

May we be secure in your loving protection, seek your Will in all our experiences, and serve you always with grateful hearts. We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

 

We ask Jesus to watch over us through the summer, to keep us safe from harm, shelter us from storms and make all travel safe no matter whether it be around home or on a trip for vacation

Thanksgiving Origins

The first American Thanksgiving was actually celebrated on September 8 (feast of the birth of the Blessed Virgin) in 1565 in St. Augustine, Florida. The Native Americans and Spanish settlers held a feast and the Holy Mass was offered. This was 56 years before the Puritan pilgrims of Massachusetts. The second American Thanksgiving happened on April 30, 1598, when Spanish explorer Don Juan de Oñate requested the friars to say a Mass of Thanksgiving, after which he formally proclaimed “La Toma”, claiming the land north of the Rio Grande for the King of Spain. All this took place twenty-three years before the Pilgrims set sail from England on the Mayflower.

 

Let everyone remember that “Thanksgiving” in Greek is Eucharistia. Thus, the Body and Blood of Christ is the true “Thanksgiving Meal”.

Lord, we thank you

for the goodness of our people

and for the spirit of justice

that fills this nation.

We thank you for the beauty and fullness of

the land and the challenge of the cities.

We thank you for our work and our rest,

for one another, and for our homes.

We thank you, Lord:

accept our thanksgiving on this day.

We pray and give thanks through

Jesus Christ our Lord.

R: Amen

Father Chris, Father Richard, Sister Yvonne

and the church staff wish you a blessed

and enjoyable Thanksgiving Day.

Breathe on Me, 0 God

 

Breathe on me, breath of God, Fill me with the life anew, That I may love the things you love, And do what you would do.

 

Breathe on me, breath of God, Until my heart is pure, Until with you I have one will, To live and to endure.

 

Breathe on me, breath of God, My soul with grace refine, Until this earthly part of me Glows with your fire divine.

 

Breathe on me, breath of God, So I shall never die, But live with you the perfect life In your eternity.

    The tradition here at St. Teresa is for parishioners to bring baked goods (homemade bread, rolls, cakes, etc.) to share with the shut-ins, sick, and needy of our community. Let us help those who are not as fortunate as we are. These baked goods can be placed on the steps of the sanctuary for a special blessing before they are distributed.

    Our parish has a very successful food pantry. Many people come to us for food; in fact, the number of people has increased this year. Also, this need increases at holiday time. We ask people to bring canned goods, dry food stuffs, cereal, pasta, rice, etc. to Mass and place them in the baskets provided in the foyer of the Church. Some of these items will be presented at the Presentation of the Gifts. Thank you for your generosity.

    Finally, if you wish, you can bring some item of food that you will be serving during your Thanksgiving Dinner for a special blessing of food and for a prayer of Thanksgiving.

    Let us make this day a day of celebration and thanksgiving to God for the many wonderful and gracious gifts he has given to us. We do have much to be thankful for…
