President George Washington's thanksgiving proclamation contains wisdom that saw beyond the years (America the Beautiful), and Lincoln's thanksgiving proclamation in 1863 was a stirring reminder of the goodness of God, as well as a powerful invitation to national unity.
I am also reminded of St. Luke's account of Jesus' miraculous healing of ten lepers: "And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. (Luke 17:15-16)
Thanks be to God on this Thanksgiving day, and every day.
