Vacation Declaration: Bishop BurbidgeFrom Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington:
“Thanksgiving is upon us. It’s a time in America when people of all faiths are expressing appreciation for God’s bountiful gifts including life, faith, family, friends, country, and the food that many of us enjoy around. of a table filled with love and joy.
“Our gratitude to God is beautifully reflected in the care and compassion we give to our neighbors who are hungry, who are homeless, who are sick, who are alone or who struggle with the burdens of daily life. Remember, whatever we do for the lesser of God’s children, we do for them. I ask you to pray for all who are vulnerable and to do your best to meet their needs.
“Know, in a special way, that I am very grateful to each of you, priests, deacons, seminarians, consecrated religious and lay faithful, for your prayers and your support. You are a special gift for me and our diocese! May we continue to encourage one another in the faith that unites us.
In this Thanksgiving, may we say “thank you” to our God of grace, source of all our good gifts. And may our lives reflect our appreciation in word and deed. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
