For this astonishing, complex planet and all you have created: I thank you, Lord.

For faith and the example of your saints: I thank you, Lord.

For the Church and our family in faith: I thank you Lord.

For our families and friends: I thank you, Lord.

For health and for those who care for the sick: I thank you, Lord.

For food, warmth and shelter: I thank you, Lord.

Lord, let me always be aware of your great kindness. In gratitude for your gifts, may I:
