Many years ago I read the book Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer, by David Steindl-Rast, and loved it. The wisdom found there can be appreciated again and again. As we approach our national feast Thanksgiving, let us ask the Spirit to open our hearts to gratitude every day of the year.
Only gratefulness, in the form of limitless openness for surprise, lays hold of the fullness of life in hope.
