Thanksgiving History: Squanto, Friend of Pilgrims, Was a Catholic

St. Paul reminds us, ‘In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus’ (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Above right, Tisquantum, also known as Squanto, is depicted in a 1922 storybook for children carrying John Billington, a young Pilgrim, after he was found lost in the woods.

Squanto, in exemplifying forgiveness and charity, helped bring to the New World, and to the Pilgrims, the virtue of love at the heart of Christianity.
