Olives and pickles and what really eliminates hunger

Readings for Today

I was blessed as a kid with two Thanksgiving dinners. The first was at my maternal grandmothers, then we went as a family to my father’s side of the family. What I remember about my grandmother’s Thanksgiving meal is that everyone played a part and brought something to the feast. Before the meal, I remember being so hungry.  The only thing on the table were dishes of pickles and olives. We ate them anyway, until we were scolded away. The meal was always wonderful, and the pies were excellent. But I am still hungry. Thank goodness the Eucharist fills my spiritual hunger forever.
