Thursday is ThanksgivingDay in the USA, a day we spend at home with family and friends. The readings for most of this week, from the Book of Daniel and the Gospel of Luke, describe a world turned upside down. Hardly readings for enjoying a family feast in the security of your home.

Three martyrs also are remembered this week.

But faith embraces a world upset and a world secure.

Next week Advent begins. Christ comes.
