Dear Friends of Mater Dei,

One of the things that Our Lord enjoys is a thankful heart and a heart that praises our Lord. Let us be mindful and grateful for all His blessings this Thanksgiving and show our gratitude in the way we love others. May we express our gratitude in our words of praise and admiration of our Lord’s goodness. 
Let us pray.  Thank you Father in Heaven for our families, friends, the warmth of our homes, and all that physically and emotionally sustains us. Thank you for our country, our Catholic Church and our Faith.  Thank you for the Sacraments that nurture us, but most of all, thank you for your great mercy and grace in our lives. Thank you Jesus for redeeming us and Holy Spirit for guiding us. Thank you for the saints that inspire us and pray for us.  May you discover in our hearts overflowing gratitude and may its warmth console you and comfort you through Christ Our Lord, Amen. 
If you were not able to attend either of our October Nights of Recollection or even if you attended both, the good news is that we have another Night of Recollection on Thursday, November 17th. This program has a completely different theme than previously presented. We hope you can come and receive the graces Our Lord has planned for you in our Jeremiah program. The details are listed below.
Happy Thanksgiving to all! 
Father Charles and Laurie
