A Way to Practice Gratitude (That Actually Sticks)

It can be easy in our modern world to fall into the trap of envy and jealousy. When we dedicate our energy and focus on what others have, we can get lost in what we don’t have.

But God hopes to remind us of a powerful truth through the practice of gratitude.

Today, Fr. Mark-Mary shares a secret for growing in gratitude and harnessing the power of living in the reality of who God has chosen us to be.
