One of those days

I woke up this morning with a throbbing headache, sore throat, stuffed-up nose. Yet my first thought was: Thank you God for letting me be at this abbey! And I meant it as a sincere prayer of Thanksgiving.

I suppose it is apt that the day before the colonies... erm, I mean, the United States of America celebrates a Thanksgiving Day: God has filled my heart with gratitude.

Happy Thanksgiving Day and God Bless you all.

  1. Greetings from the USA!

    Thank you for your Thanksgiving wishes!

    God bless you Declan - the trappists are very special indeed. I go on yearly retreats to St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer Massachusetts. It is an awesome abbey! I thank all the trappists who pray for the world every day - we certainly need those prayers.

    I will pray for you, in your vocation!

    God bless...
