Solanus Casey - a man full of thanks!

How appropriate that this Thanksgiving Day falls on the 140th birthday of Venerable Solanus Casey, a Capuchin who truly knew how to offer thanks to God for blessings received.

"Let us thank God ahead of time for whatever he forsees is pleasing to Him, leaving everything at His divine disposal, including, with all its circumstances, when, where, and how He may be pleased to dispose the events of our death."

I pray that I can emulate his gentle, peaceful, practical, grateful ways.

Pax et bonum
