“God wants nothing of you but the gift of a peaceful heart.” Meister Eckhart
God of all kindness, everything that exists comes from you. You renew our joy in your creation, and give us a heart attentive to those we meet. And then we can better show your luminous presence for every human being.
Three of the 13 Gratitutudes
(Joyce Rupp, OSM)
- To find ways to reach out and help the disenfranchised, while also preserving their dignity and self-worth.
- To be as loving and caring as possible, in a culture that consistently challenges these virtues.
- To remember to say or send “thank you” for whatever comes as a gift from another.

Virtual Thanksgiving Feast
"At this meal, there will be no place settings, no formal attire, and no cleanup. Actually, there will be no turkey either. At this time of plenty for many Americans, I am asking you to join us in remembering children in the U.S. and around the world who don’t know where their next meal is coming from....RESULTS volunteers defend SNAP (food stamp) and child nutrition funding for in the U.S. and advocate for global child nutrition programs in Congress. In this season of plenty, please help me and other volunteers fight hunger by visiting my personal fundraising page and help me support the work that RESULTS does today so that others may feast tomorrow."
