Secret to Joy
Do you have a secret ingredient for your Thanksgiving turkey, stuffing, or pie? The secret to joy at our heavenly banquet is in the name itself: the Holy Eucharist (from Greek eukharistia, which means “thanksgiving”). Beloved children of God are made for thanksgiving. As air fills the lungs, bringing health and vigor to the body, gratitude swells the heart with joy in the Holy Spirit.
Let us give thanks to the Lord.
