Joy and Gratitude in our Today’s Life

25.03.2014 - 22:30

What delight and power emanates from good news, we recognise, especially when rather contrary messages dominate the media. How important are the true knowledge of other cultural communities to live together in peace, sometimes shows up just in case of conflicts between neighboring populations, which we are at a loss from the outside.

Positive perspectives and reflected reporting open us options for action and are therefore more important than ever in our complex world.

Joy is an attitude that begins in ourselves. One of the most inspired mediator of zest for life is Brother David Steindl-Rast. The Benedictine monk has made arousing joy out of gratitude for his life’s work. How impressive Brother David translated this mental attitude into our modern living environment! He extends deep joy also in demanding management conditions!
