A HARVEST OF THANKSGIVING
At this time of year
when days are full
and orchards yield a rich harvest,
we pause and ponder,
look back and give thanks
for all the Dominicans
who have gone before us
and walked in Dominic’s way,
serving with great love and compassion,
living a full and holy life
as they walked on holy ground.
They shared their solid commitment
to living truth and justice
on behalf of those most in need.
A marvel to behold, remember and treasure.
We hold up with grateful hearts
the harvest of their hands
and ask that God’s blessing flow through each of them
our Dominican brothers, sisters and friends,
as we give deep thanks to our God.
By Sr. Brenda Walsh, Racine Dominican
