Psalm 145:10

All your works give you thanks, O Lord, and your faithful bless you.

The Greek word for “Eucharist” means thanksgiving.

Jesus showed us how to live our lives as “thanksgiving” to others.

He gave of himself in the name of love…pouring himself out in unconditional love for all…even when persecuted and crucified.

We are called to do the same.

We become what we eat. In the Christian tradition….when we receive the Eucharist at communion we are meant to become thanksgiving to all.

We are meant to go forth and use our gifts and talents to be living signs of Christ…living signs of thanksgiving.

Each of us is unique in how we do this since each of us is a unique creation of God. When we are living in this manner we are giving thanks to God.

All of creation gives praise and thanks to God in its very being.

Here is a good question to ask of yourself each day:

How am I being the unique vessel of God’s thanksgiving to the world?”
