I hope that the things I have learned from the brothers will shine through me. That might be one way I can show my gratitude for them. As people get to know me, I can tell them, “No, that wasn’t something I learned in school, or learned from some institution. I got this gift from the monastery.” I hope that is one way I will be able to thank them.
Powerful sermon? Important moment? Experience of prayer? A good retreat?
