Happy Thanksgiving

I have used these words before on this blog, and I still can think of none better than those of our Dominican mystic Meister Eckhart: If the only prayer you pray in your life is thank you, it will be enough.  


This month the subject is Wisdom.  And today we begin with a quote that set the tone for all of our congregation’s Chapter (our meeting at which the sisters gather to discern our direction): Wisdom stands at the door and waits.

Where Is God?

God is at home, it’s we who have gone out for a walk. – Meister Eckhart

Anyone who truly knows creatures may be excused from listening sermons for every creature is full of God, and is a book about God. – the Dominican mystic, Meister Eckhart
