The Grateful Person

The grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience.

And that is what makes all the difference.

– Thomas Merton


In 2008, Sister Carla, Father Bob, and I went with a group of Dominican University students on a service trip to Tijuana. We painted Lupita’s house. In the way of possessions, she is poor – in generosity of heart and trust in God, she is rich. Lupita is one who knows God’s goodness by experience, and knowing her and her family has enriched my experience of trusting our Loving God.
