Thank you, Thank you;
the women and men murmur politely.
It was a crowded room of 93
people experiencing homelessness.
On this cold winter day, they repeated their gratitude;
the prayerful expressions of appreciation
for the food and companionship.
Thank you Lord Jesus for the graciousness
of the people who have little materially
but, are rich in grace and gratitude.
- Columban Fr. Thomas Glennon
