With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it is the perfect time to reflect on all the wonderful gifts we have been blessed with. Gratitude is important to practice all year long, but the holiday season especially can easily lose its richness if we give into the materialism of the world and forget to give thanks for all God has given us.
A man who truly lived in a spirit of gratitude each and every day was St. Josemaria Escrivá. His life’s work was built upon the idea that small moments and daily tasks are all opportunities to glorify God. Even the most ordinary people, in his eyes, could be extraordinary in their love, service, and care for their fellow man. We hope that his words can inspire you this Thanksgiving to embrace gratitude, hope, and love in this holiday season!
Seven quotes from St. Josemaria to lead you toward gratitude:
When you and I put the same zeal into the affairs of our souls, then we’ll have a living and working faith. And there will be no obstacle that we cannot overcome in our apostolic works.”
We hope you can grow in gratitude with the help of St. Josemaria’s powerful words. For more from St. Josemaria, check out ourSt. Josemaria Escriva Collection!
