Forever in thanksgiving

Celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November, Thanksgiving Day has been an annual holiday in the US since 1863. It is also a time for many people to give thanks for what they have. But Thanksgiving is overall a part of Christian life, as we realize how much God has done for us and for others. St Josemaria developed gratitude as a virtue throughout his life, as those who lived with him recall.
