Thanksgiving

Almighty, most holy, most high and supreme God, holy and just Father,
Lord, king of heaven and earth, for Thyself we give thanks to Thee
because by Thy holy will, and by Thine only Son, Thou hast created all
things spiritual and corporal in the Holy Ghost and didst place us made
to Thine image and likeness in paradise, whence we fell by our own
fault. And we give Thee thanks because, as by Thy Son Thou didst create
us, so by the true and holy love with which Thou hast loved us, Thou
didst cause Him, true God and true man, to be born…. And we give
thanks to Thee because Thy Son Himself is to come again in the glory of
His Majesty … to say to all who have known Thee and adored Thee, and
served Thee in repentance: “Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess the
Kingdom prepared for you from the beginning of the world.” And since all
we wretches and sinners are not worthy to name Thee, we humbly beseech
Thee, that our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy beloved Son, in whom Thou art well
pleased, together with the Holy Ghost, the Paraclete, may give thanks to
Thee as it is pleasing to Thee and Them, for all. Amen.

“Francis of Assisi
