Overview
-

‘I say, unashamedly, that you should acquire this “therapeutic” anthology. Buy it, read it, open it each day and night, dip into it, skim through it, study it, peruse it, mark what touches your heart, give a copy to those you love and inscribe it with your gratitude for their presence in your life.’ Dr Marie Murray Gratias is an anthology of personal experiences, poems, memories, reflections and prayers in which expressions of thankfulness are recalled by a wide range of contributors. Through wisdom – ancient and modern – the reader is invited to reflect on the gift of gratitude in their own lives and to express this gratitude for all things including: the natural world; the gift of love; health and healing; silence; contentment; parents; everyday things; teachers; blessings; the gift of faith; and a loving God. With contributions from over one hundred sources, ranging from Pope Francis to Richard Burton, Seamus Heaney to Maureen Potter, Gratias offers the reader a wide spectrum of inspirational insights into the rewards of being thankful for the blessings we receive in our daily lives. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Gratias is compiled by writer and former RTÉ broadcaster John Quinn, who has published several titles with Veritas including Walking on the Pastures of Wonder; This Place Speaks to Me; The Curious Mind; Letters to Olive; and A Little Book of Ledwidge.
