Dear Philoptochos Sisters,
Together with family and loved ones we celebrate the joyous Thanksgiving as we offer to the Lord our gratitude.
We keep in our prayers our fellow Americans who do not sleep in a cozy bed or share a bountiful meal with dear companions. Our neighbors near and far may struggle with illness, pain and sorrow. We pray for our fellow Americans under siege and ask the Lord to protect and guide them safely. Let us, with sensitivity and respect, continue to respond and lift the hearts of our sisters and brothers.
We thank the Lord for all His blessings on this national day of Thanksgiving and on every day throughout the year. I am grateful for the good works and faithful service of my fellow Sisters in Christ.
