Thanksgiving Day and the Eucharist?

by Ian on October 20, 2007

 

"The Season of Thanksgiving and Blessing is Upon Us. Thanksgiving Day is November 22"

"The one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully . . . for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work . . . He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God."

- St. Paul's Second Letter to the Corinthians, 9:6-8, 10-11

"Prayer of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving characterizes the prayer of the Church which, in celebrating the Eucharist, reveals and becomes more fully what she is. Indeed, in the work of salvation, Christ sets creation free from sin and death to consecrate it anew and make it return to the Father, for his glory. The thanksgiving of the members of the Body (of Christ) participates in that of the Head (Christ Himself).

As in the prayer of petition, every event and need can become an offering of thanksgiving. The letters of St. Paul often begin and end with thanksgiving, and the Lord Jesus is always present in it: "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you"; "Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving."

- from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2637, 2638
