It is a blessed coincidence that Thanksgiving Day as celebrated by the American colonists and Puritans, and Albanian Independence Day, are commemorated in the same week. These anniversaries have been a blessing to our religious communities and our national interests for nearly a century. Therefore, let us pray, rejoice and share with our compatriots in freedom, these compassionate joys as the month of November closes, and as we approach the celebration of the Lord’s birth in December.
