Thanksgiving Reflections

“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us - and He has given us everything. 

Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him. Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. 

For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference."  

- Thomas Merton

"The greatest gift one can give is thanksgiving. In giving gifts, we give what we can spare, but in giving thanks we give ourselves."  

-Brother David Steindl-Rast offers a collection of happy news and images, including a stunning photo of the Supermoon and accounts of how ordinary people took extraordinary steps to help others in need. There are also stories about milestones that were reached and about how renewable energy is transforming a community and a country.  See Grateful News for November
