A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue,
but the parent of all the other virtues.
Gatha Before Eating
The joys and pains of all beings
are present in the gift of this food.
Let us receive it in love and gratitude…
And in mindfulness of our sisters and brothers
among living beings of every kind
who are hungry or homeless, sick or injured,
or suffering in any way.
This Week’s Affirmation:
“I see all of the beauty and grace which is around me with loving gratitude.”
