(front) Let Us Give Thanks To The Lord, Our God (back) I thank you, Heavenly Father for the grace of being a Jesuit for 50 years and a priest for 37 years. Would you please help me give thanks to God? Please pray with me. God and Father of all gifts, we praise you, the source of all we have and are. Teach us to acknowledge always the many good things your infinite love has given us. Help us to love you with all our heart and all our strength.
