Instead of Martha Stewart, Try St. Mary and St. Martha

Thanksgiving can be a stressful holiday, with the fattening stressful mix of intense cooking, intense cleaning, visiting relatives and the hard push of the TV, only the 32 days until Christmas, how do we make this holiday a day of blessed sacred time?  By following the Saints, Saint Mary in being present and in awe of Jesus, and Saint Martha and being the hands and feet that prepare the feast out of love for others, love for Christ.

Click over to this timely post from the My Year of Faith group blog from the diocese of Fort Wayne/South Bend, Indiana.  There, you'll see Sherry Antonetti's suggestions for Thanksgiving hostesses to relieve stress, realign priorities, and re-energize a sense of gratitude.
