After my death our beloved Church abroad will break three ways ... first the Greeks will leave us as they were never a part of us ... then those who live for this world and its glory will go to Moscow ... what will remain will be those souls faithful to Christ and His Church. ~St. Philaret of NY

Every year, for some years now, around the Thanksgiving holiday, I ponder on a service (below) that was blessed by St. Tikhon of Moscow (and, really, Apostle to America) during his prolific missionary days as Bishop of San Francisco.  One thing that he was particularly struck by in the heyday of American culture, is that Americans set aside a particular day to give thanks to God for all that he has bestowed.  

DISCLAIMER:  This service does not, at present, have the blessing of our hierarchs for liturgical use, and is presented for contemplation purposes only.  

Happy Thanksgiving to all.
