A silly Thanksgiving post

Come, ye thankful people, cheer
All the Catholic blogosphere:
Raise your voice in happy song
And feel free to Tweet along.
All the posts we share and read,
Through a Google reader feed--
Make us laugh, or cry, or smile
Gladly Catholic all the while.

Thank the Lord for Jeff and Mark,
And for CMR's fine snark,
Thanks for Amy, Larry D--
And for Life-after-RC.
Thanks for Sister and for Paul
And for Dr. G. Nadal,
Thanks for blogs like Catholic Light,
And for all who work and write.

Gratefully of blogs we sing,
Blogs that make us laugh and bring
Humor, joy and great delight,
With the things they craft and write--
Waltzing Matilda, Karen too,
Deirdre, Charlotte, all those who
Chronicle their Catholic days
In unique and joyful ways.

Thank you, Lord, for Robert too,
And his hard work to please You,
With his writing careful, clear,
At his own blog, here, and here--
Where he does the greater part

Of the Coalition's art,
Making evil plain to see,
Standing up for clarity.

And for readers great and small
Lord, we thank you most of all,
For the people who join in,
Reading, lurking, commenting.
For their patience, friendship, grace,
Making in a virtual space,
Something that is joy to see:
A Catholic community.

Lord, for all Your gifts sublime,
Whether real or online,
We join in with voices raised,
Offering our grateful praise.
As we pause today to sing,
All our thanks to Christ, our King,
Let us spare a small, glad cheer
For the Catholic blogosphere!

:) :) :)

Happy Thanksgiving to all! :)

Thank you and I know the only reason you put be before Mark is for the Rhyme.

Red Cardigan said...

Not at all, Jeff! :) I was reading your blog long before I'd ever heard of that crazy Shea kid.

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

Happy week end after Black Friday (since I'm tuning in late - spent Thanksgiving with my parents (both in their 80s and still in their own place) without even turning on a computer.

And Merry Christmas - I never say that before Thanksgiving,

Your faithful Protestant reader
