In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.– Brother David Steindl-Rast @

Brother David has a tremendous site that I’ve added to the links section. I’ve been getting a regular email from for over a year now and nearly everyday I hear from a different point of view. David’s site is very inclusive and it’s really a blessing to be touched by what he has to offer. Gratitude and mindfulness are real keys to contemplative living. I am amazed at times at Brother David’s enthusiasm for life and living. It is no doubt part of the secret to his longevity. Brother David will be celebrating his 80th birthday this year. Here is a link to an interview and podcast with David at National Catholic Reporter.
