Saint Quotes: Saint Louis IX and Pope Saint Leo the Great
Note: I couldn't decide between these two quotes for Thanksgiving here in the United States, so today you get 2 instead of 1.
In prosperity, give thanks to God with humility and fear lest by pride you abuse God's benefits and so offend him.
–- Saint Louis IX from a letter to his son
Dear friends, now that we have received instruction in this revelation of God's grace, let us celebrate with spiritual joy the day of our first harvesting, of the first calling of the Gentiles. Let us give thanks to the merciful God, "who has made us worthy," in the words of the Apostle, "to share the position of the saints in light; who has rescued us from the power of darkness, and brought us into the kingdom of this beloved Son."
–- Pope Saint Leo the Great from a sermon
