THANKSGIVING MEANS LIVING WITH GRATITUDE AND HOPE
By S. Brenda Walsh, Racine Dominican
At this time of year
when fields and orchards
yield an abundant harvest,
we are invited to pause, pray and ponder,
to look around us and beyond us
and give thanks for all the
bountiful blessings we always enjoy.
We are grateful for each and all
of our Dominican Brothers, Sisters,
Associates, and friends, who daily
live Dominic’s daring dream.
They offer their faith and commitment
through lives of peace and justice, and sharing
their bountiful gifts with those most in need.
We hold up with gratitude and reverence
the harvest of their hands and hearts, and
ask that God will bless the gift of all
their good works, as we give deep thanks
to our Loving God.
We cherish the memories of
all the Dominicans who have gone before us
and we treasure their legacy and give thanks.
