Gratitude goes beyond the “mine” and “thine” and claims the truth that all of life is a pure gift. In the past I always thought of gratitude as a spontaneous response to the awareness of gifts received, but now I realize that gratitude can also be lived as a discipline. The discipline of gratitude is the explicit effort to acknowledge that all I am and have is given to me as a gift of love, a gift to be celebrated with joy.
~~ Henri J. Nouwen
Caring becomes my way of thanking for what I have received;
I thank by caring all the more for others and the conditions of their existence.
~~ Milton Mayeroff

We all have “stuff.” Don’t you? Are you cleaning out? Cleaning up? Gratitude enters into that, too! Here is Marie Kondo’s insight …:
Have gratitude for the things you’re discarding. By giving gratitude, you’re giving closure to the relationship with that object, and by doing so, it becomes a lot easier to let go.
~~ Marie Kondo
How about letting go of 20 items you no longer need and replace them with just one – yes, one!:

Gratitude as Lenten Practice
I find that the practice of Gratitude helps me to be more fully present, and much more appreciative of all of the abundance in my life. I’ve recently learned that gratitude is associated with high levels of vitality, optimism and life satisfaction. Gratitude increases physical and mental well being, which in turn increases energy levels.
Here’s a quick and easy gratitude practice: Think of the letters www and ask What Went Well? Challenge yourself to do it daily and increase your list of things that are going well – for example, start by thinking of 3 things and writing them down in your journal. Increase your numbers each day so that you’re soon reflecting on over a dozen things that are going well in your life and in the world.
~ From Beth Blissman, for Loretto at the UN (2018 Daily Lenten Reflections from the Loretto Community’s Mission Activities Team)
The Spiritual Work of Gratitude
(Henri J. Nouwen)
To be grateful for the good things that happen in our lives is easy, but to be grateful for all of our lives—the good as well as the bad, the moments of joy as well as the moments of sorrow, the successes as well as the failures, the rewards as well as the rejections—that requires hard spiritual work. Still, we are only truly grateful people when we can say thank you to all that has brought us to the present moment. As long as we keep dividing our lives between events and people we would like to remember and those we would rather forget, we cannot claim the fullness of our beings as a gift of God to be grateful for.
Let’s not be afraid to look at everything that has brought us to where we are now and trust that we will soon see in it the guiding hand of a loving God.
Teach Me to Listen
Teach me to listen, O God,
to those nearest me, my family, my friends, my co-workers.
Help me to be aware that no matter what words I hear,
the message is, “Accept the person I am. Listen to me.”
Teach me to listen, my caring God,
to those far from me –
the whisper of the hopeless,
the plea of the forgotten,
the cry of the anguished.
Teach me to listen, O God my Mother, to myself.
Help me to be less afraid to trust the voice inside –
in the deepest part of me.
Teach me to listen, Holy Spirit,
for your voice –
in busyness and in boredom,
in certainty and doubt,
in noise and in silence.
Teach me, Lord, to listen.
~~Leo Veltri, SJ
Celebrate Lent and Easter this season with unique gifts from Creator Mundi. Wouldn’t you like to invite more of this season into your reflections and festivities this year? Encourage faith, hope, and love. These Easter gifts and keepsakes are of heirloom quality and are sure to please children and adults alike.
The Time Of The Year To Focus Our Faith
For those of us who observe the 40-day Lenten season, Ash Wednesday to Maundy Thursday call us to introspection and engagement. True, we strive to let go of particular things or habits during this time by fasting as Jesus did.
We let go, however, with the expectation of gaining something more significant. Lent can ignite in us a desire to journey outward into the service of others. It can also serve to ground us in gratitude as we contemplate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Christian Gifts For Lenten Time
Commemorate a spiritual pilgrimage. Surround loved ones with uplifting images of service. Provide a compelling focal point for meditation. Challenge and encourage the people you care about to remember that peace and personal growth may be only a prayer away with our Christian gifts for Lent.
- Go Deep – Bronze Spiral Plaque
- Scallop Shell Pilgrimage Pendant
- Labyrinth Pocket Prayer
- Paschal Lamb Pendant
- Life Of Christ Bronze Wall Cross
- Last Supper Bronze Wall Cross

A Catholic Easter Basket
Make your Easter celebration just as meaningful and memorable. Replace plastic grass and disposable trinkets with something special, lasting, and personal. Our curated selection of beautiful pendants, figurines, and spiritual wall art are just as rewarding to give as they are to receive for Easter.
- Angel Of Blessing Bronze Figurine
- First Glorious Mystery Plaque

I want to see you.
Know your voice.
Recognize you when you
first come ’round the corner.
Sense your scent when I come
into a room you’ve just left.
Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.
Become familiar with the way
you purse your lips
then let them part,
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.
I want to know the joy
of how you whisper
If love is the soul of Christian existence, it must be at the heart of every other Christian virtue. Thus, for example, justice without love is legalism; faith without love is ideology; hope without love is self-centeredness; forgiveness without love is self-abasement; fortitude without love is recklessness; generosity without love is extravagance; care without love is mere duty; fidelity without love is servitude. Every virtue is an expression of love. No virtue is really a virtue unless it is permeated, or informed, by love.
~~Richard Rohr, OFM
Good Samaritan Contemporary Icon (framed reverse oil painting on glass)
Each of us spins repeatedly from blindness to radiance,
from dividedness to wholeness,
and it is our impulse to stay in touch with all that is alive
that keeps us from staying lost.
It is the impulse to be intimate.
To live with things
and not in front of them,
to no longer watch,
but to realize that we are part of everything we see –
this is the love
that keeps moving us back into wholeness
when we are divided.
To love by admitting our connection to everything
is how we stay well.
Allowing the current of another’s inwardness
to connect with our own
is the beginning of both
intimacy and enlightenment.
~~Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening (adapted excerpts)
- Close your eyes and be still until you sense the presence of the things about you.
- Breathe softly and feel the current of their silence.
- Breathe evenly and open your heart to all that you sense.
With All My Love Figurine
by MARY OLIVER (1935-2019)
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about your despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Let’s act on what he says! Martin Luther King’s words …
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Love [people] even in [their] sin,
for that is the semblance of Divine Love
and is the highest love on earth.
Love all God’s creation,
the whole and every grain of sand in it.
Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light.
Love the animals, love the plants, love everything.
If you love everything,
you will perceive the divine mystery in things.
Once you have perceived it,
you will begin to comprehend it better every day.
And you will come at last to love the whole world
with an all-embracing love.
—Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
The Heart Space
Love lives and thrives in the heart space. It has kept me from wanting to hurt people who have hurt me. It keeps me every day from obsessive, repetitive, or compulsive head games. It can make the difference between being happy and being miserable and negative. Could this be what we are really doing when we say we are praying for someone? Yes, we are holding them in our heart space. Do this in an almost physical sense, and you will see how calmly and quickly it works.
Next time a resentment, negativity, or irritation comes into your mind, and you want to play it out or attach to it, move that thought or person literally into your heart space. Dualistic commentaries are lodged in your head; but in your heart, you can surround this negative thought with silence. There it is surrounded with blood, which will often feel warm like coals. In this place, it is almost impossible to comment, judge, create story lines, or remain antagonistic. You are in a place that does not create or feed on contraries but is the natural organ of life, embodiment, and love. Now the Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart have been transferred to you. They are pointing for you to join them there. The “sacred heart” is then your heart too.
Richard Rohr, OFM, Daily Meditations, September 8, 2018
