“The root of joy is gratefulness...It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.”
Brother David Steindl-Rast

David Steindl-Rast, Music of Silence: A Sacred Journey Through the Hours of the Day

“We are never more than one grateful thought away from peace of heart.”
Brother David Steindl-Rast
