The Dominican Center wishes a very Happy Thanksgiving to all those who visit our site and to those who enroll in our programs. We are grateful for you and hope that we can be a spiritual lens and gift for you.

Gratitude is the type of virtue which is unlimited.  It benefits both the giver and the receiver – there is a mutuality in gratitude.  Like mercy, “it is twice blest.  It blesseth him (her) that gives and him (her) that takes” (quote from the Merchant of Venice by Wm Shakespeare)

Psychologists tell us that through gratitude we focus on the good in our lives.  It can make us feel enriched and less burdened. The best way to reap the benefits of gratitude is to notice new things you’re grateful for every day. We are encouraged to be specific so that we can see our lives as blessed.

This Thanksgiving we count you among our blessings.  We are grateful and we thank you.
