The End Is Near Image

Act of Thanksgiving for Blessings of the Past Year

O God, the beginning and the end of all things, Who art always the same, and Whose years fail not, we now, at the close of another year, kneel in adoration before Thee, and offer Thee our deepest thanks for the fatherly care with which Thou has watched over us during the past, for the many times Thou hast protected us from evils of soul and body, and for the numberless blessings, both temporal and spiritual, which Thou hast showered upon us. May it please Thee to accept the homage of our grateful hearts which we offer Thee in union with the infinite thanksgiving of Thy divine Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, Who with Thee liveth and reigneth forever and ever. Amen.

Let Christ Live in Your HeartGive to us, O Lord, a steadfast heart, which no unworthy affection may drag downwards; an unconquered heart, which no tribulation can wear out; an upright heart, which no unworthy purpose may tempt aside.  Grant to us also, O Lord, understanding to know you, diligence to seek you, wisdom to find you, and a faithfulness finally to embrace you; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thomas Aquinas (1225 – 1274)
