“If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.” – Meister Eckhart

Flourish with the spirituality of gratitude.

This course explores the spiritual and theological underpinnings that are foundational for enhancing and developing the art and spirituality of gratitude. Under the guidance of renowned Christian spirituality expert Fr. Anthony Ciorra, you will explore how gratitude is at the heart of all Christian spirituality. Gratitude offers a path that leads to deeper love and awareness of God, self, and the world. You will foster positive attitudes that will open your heart to love, forgiveness, and peace. These practices are best expressed in the context of community, and thus the art of gratitude proves to be the bridge between profound spirituality and authentic religious practice.

As this thoughtful and lively course so clearly demonstrates, gratitude is about remembering and noticing. More than anything, gratitude helps us understand and live out the realities of God’s grace.

Weaving together our rich spiritual and theological traditions with ideas from modern psychology, Fr. Ciorra invites you to bring the fullness of gratitude into your prayer and daily living.
