Dear “Family” - Have you ever thought of the power of the word, “not”. This little word carries a powerful punch. Take for example the meaning of NOT guilty VS. Guilty. The word, “not”, always points to the great intellectual powers of the Human Person. How many of us can notice that something is “not square”, or “not straight”. This discussion also makes me think of, Sesame Street’s, “which one does NOT belong?” We are coming up on Thanksgiving. We share the trait of “FAMILY” in Thanksgiving that the Asians do with their celebration of Lunar New Year. All of us have encoded in us the idea of a “Good Thanksgiving”, just like we know about ‘square’ or ‘straight’. I believe that in our minds, most of us carry with us memories of a “Good Thanksgiving”. We can get depressed during the holiday because we long to re-find that Good Thanksgiving. Well, I hope you know, this is another one of the many things God uses to lead us to Heaven. Heaven IS the Real Thanksgiving.                                                                                                                 Fr.
