Thanksgiving prayers, blessings before the big meal, music, and reflections: Day 6



In the nine days leading up to Thanksgiving I will share a novena of prayers, reflections, and music selections that may enhance the celebration of this special day with your family and friends.

Day 6: Today I will share a prayer for persons and families who mourn and grieve the loss of a loved one this Thanksgiving.

If I Can Stop One Heart from Breaking

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
