Reflection of His mercy

Seven offenders and I spent 45 minutes yesterday sharing what the following Merton quote means in our lives.

The solitary life is a life in which we cast our care upon the Lord and delight only in the help that comes from Him. Whatever He does is our joy. We reproduce His goodness in us by our gratitude. (Or – our gratitude is the reflection of His mercy. It is what makes us like Him.)  – Thomas Merton
