A Thanksgiving Prayer
O God, when I have food,
help me to remember the
When I have work, help me
remember the jobless.
When I have a warm home,
help me remember the
When I am without pain,
help me remember those
By remembering, help me
destroy complacency and
May I be concerned enough
to help by word and deed,
those who cry out for what we
take for granted!

“And they discussed it with one another, saying, “We have no bread.” And being aware of it, Jesus said to them, “Why do you discuss the fact that you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive or understand? Are your hearts hardened? Having eyes do you not see, and having ears do you not hear? And do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?” They said to him, “Twelve.” “And the seven for the four thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you take up?” And they said to him, “Seven.” And he said to them, “Do you not yet understand?” (Mark 8:16-21)
RUNNING THE RACE— “an instruction on discernment learned ‘seat of the pants’ style!”… “Knowing: is a range of understanding a subject/object; Discerning: is fully understanding the answer to the question– at this point in time, what is the appropriate relationship to have with that subject/object.”

A FEW EXCERPTS FROM THE BOOK…
P. 116 “I thought this group of monks was protected from getting uppity, or changing. Daily they got grungy. They got hot and sweaty. They were busy with their work…They started the day with a marathon Matins, Lauds, private Masses which took from about 5 AM to 7:30 AM, then there was a short break and they had Prime at 8 AM.”
P. 85 “Discernment also includes a not-limiting of God’s means of Providence. So often we expect God’s Providence to come in the manner that we expect– the direct way. Open-mindedness is the key.”
P. 124 “When you bring up a big subject– a tornado is headed this way– you expect a little attention to be given to the subject. When it’s not given, it’s just weird!”
P. 63 “What does one do when one is hemmed in all around and finds oneself engulfed in what seems to one’s heart and mind to be a sacrilege?”
