Happy Catholic Thanksgiving!



Did you know the Greek word for "Thanksgiving" is Eucharist? So what does that mean for Catholic Thanksgiving?

... that the Last Supper was the First Thanksgiving! Move over, Pilgrims.



Since Eucharist is the Greek word for "Thanksgiving," it is no wonder why many families go to Holy Mass on Thanksgiving, even though it's not a Holy Day of Obligation. It's a good way to give the holiday its proper Christian context.

It is good to be reminded of all the blessings in our lives, but none more so than the ultimate gift of Christ, Himself.

Happy Catholic Thanksgiving to everyone! Happy Eucharist!
