During the Last Supper, Jesus Christ told the Twelve Apostles that they weren’t just His disciples—they were His friends. Think about how those words must have made them feel, and remember that we, too, have the power to raise spirits as we show gratitude to others.
Three Simple Ways to Get Involved
Write a thank-you letter to someone who has positively impacted your life.
Offer a prayer of pure gratitude—no requests, just thanks.
Give a simple gift to your mail carrier to raise his or her spirits during this busy season.
Great! Thanks for participating. Now invite your friends to Light the World with you! Use #LIGHTtheWORLD.
Other Ways to Participate
Fill your home or office with surprise thank-you notes for people to discover during the day.
Start a notebook to record things you are grateful for each day.
Vow not to complain for one day. Each time you break the vow, pay a compliment to someone.
