Thankfulness

“Thanksgiving is a perfect act of love because in it we have no other interest than the glory of God, the pleasure of God, the complacency of God.  When we ask we are moved by our own interests; but when we thank we are moved by more noble and more perfect sentiments.”
From Words of St. Frances X. Cabrini, compiled by Sr. Fede Nemia, 1967
