Pope's quotes: Give thanks

A quote from Pope Francis:

"To be able to offer thanks, to be able to praise the Lord for what He has done for us: this is important! So we can ask ourselves: Are we capable of saying 'thank you'? How many times do we say 'thank you' in our family, our community, and in the church? How many times do we say 'thank you' to those who help us, to those close to us, to those who accompany us through life? Often we take everything for granted! This also happens with God. It is easy to approach the Lord to ask for something, but to return and give thanks..."
