I have recently started a new job, as an employee (I have been self-employed for many years).  As a way of thanking the Lord for this new job, I attended Mass for nine consecutive days. It was easy and simple to do. I started with the Sacrament of Reconciliation on a Friday afternoon, and then daily Mass from Saturday morning through to Sunday a week later. I am frequently thinking about John 21:15-17, where Jesus asks Peter three times: “Do you love me?”. Jesus then asks Peter do to do specific tasks to prove his love. This is where I got the idea to attend Mass for nine consecutive days, to try to show my love and my thankfulness to the Lord for all he has given to me.

So what do you have to be thankful for, and how will you show the Lord that you are thankful?
