Monsignor’s Message – Thanksgiving

Posted on Nov 22, 2017 in Monsignor's Message, Msgr. Kieran Harrington

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

At every moment of the day, the Holy Mass is being offered somewhere in the world. This sacrifice of Christ on Calvary is made present to us in a mystical way. The Mass and the Eucharist is our celebration of giving thanks. In fact, Eucharist is Greek for Thanksgiving. Let us strive to be thankful for the blessings that the Lord has bestowed upon us each day. One way to manifest that gratitude is by our preparation for and frequency of participation at Mass. As we celebrate Christ the KingĀ Sunday, the last Sunday of the Church year, we ought not just have the name of Jesus on our lips, but redouble our efforts to manifest His sacrifice of thanksgiving in our lives. May God bless you.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
