I’m just a simple truck driver, un hombre sincero. One thing I can’t abide is the part of the Mass where the congregation now says, “…we give You thanks for Your great glory.” That sentence is nonsense, and I shut my mouth when it comes around.
If I was in an accident and a passing Samaritan gave me CPR, saving my life, I might send him $1,000 along with a note with my thanks. I would never thank him for, say, having blue eyes. His eye color is innate and gratitude for that trait is not warranted. A thank you would be incongruous.
Similarly, Christ’s glory is innate and I’m certain He wouldn’t expect thanks for a quality that He has possessed since before time began. It would be OK to thank Our Lord for the glory that He allows to be reflected in us. I can think of hundreds of things to thank Our Lord for, His glory is not one of them.
