P.U.S.H  Pray Until Something Happens

The real question is. What do we do when our prayers are answered? Today, Jesus comments about this, “Ten were cleansed, were they not? Where are the other nine? Has none, but this foreigner returned to give thanks to God!”

Gratitude is not just a social grace. Gratitude is a habit of the heart. None of us owns our source of existence or the source of all that we need to survive and flourish. All of life is a gift to us. Truly grateful persons acknowledge that they are recipients of countless gifts from others. True gratitude springs from that essential insight. The very word “Gratitude” comes from the same root as the word “Grace”  gift.

The Eucharist is the ultimate act of gratitude thanksgiving for life and salvation in Christ. Gratitude enriches us, it opens us to experience the bounty of God and others. The more we become grateful people, the more will find to be grateful for!
