Bishop Douglas Deshotel’s Thanksgiving Message to People of Acadiana

Bishop Douglas Deshotel says, “Hello, I’m Bishop Douglas Deshotel of the Diocese of Lafayette, wishing you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving.
Psalm 92 reminds us “It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord.” Thanksgiving is at the heart of Christian life. The principle focus of our Catholic Mass is an act of thanksgiving for what God has done for us in Jesus. I pray that your gathering today be a time of blessing and grace. God keep you, and all whom you cherish, this Thanksgiving Day. I also pray that during the holy season of Advent, we may continue to bring the Gospel to a world that needs Christ to be born in the hearts of all.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone”.
