Moleben of Thanksgiving: MolebenOfThanksgiving

Thanksgiving Day is November 23rd this year and commemorates the feast held by the Pilgrim colonists and members of the Wampanoag people at Plymouth in 1621. On this day people express gratitude to God for His blessings and give thanks to dear ones for their love & support.

The Gospel Reading today is Luke 18:31-34, in which “Jesus Predicts His Death a Third Time.” The Reading is as follows: “31 Jesus took the Twelve aside and told them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled. 32 He will be delivered over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him and spit on him; 33 they will flog him and kill him. On the third day he will rise again.” 34 The disciples did not understand any of this. Its meaning was hidden from them, and they did not know what he was talking about.”
