“May God grant you joy of heart,” we hear in the reading from Sirach for Thanksgiving Day. That is our wish and prayer for all of you whose lives are part of the Ursuline family. If there is discord in your life, may you be a bringer and receiver of peace. If there is loss, may your path be blessed by one whose generosity knows no bounds. If your heart is already full, may you lavish blessings on those who are in need. If you are exhausted because your table is laden with the labor of your hands and crowded with family and friends, may your heart rejoice in the midst of your weariness. Whatever your Thanksgiving brings to you, may you infuse the day with your own joy of heart and be a grace for someone else!
