A Thanksgiving Thought

"Knowing I could not master Wisdom but by the gift of God

- and it is a gift of God, to know to Whom I owe the gift -

I turned to the Lord to entreat him. (Wisdom 8, 20)

Someday, may all Americans be blessed to know 'to Whom to credit all our gifts'.

John Kilgallen, S.J.
