It's about Catholic Culture: What is the Catholic experience? How do we connect experience and faith? Can we bring faith to life and give life to the faith?
How do we root ourselves in that most foundational of virtues, gratitude, even in moments when there doesn’t seem much to be grateful for? How does the presence of gratitude in our lives speak to our relationship not just with God but with the world around us? Cambria Tortorelli will explore the dimensions of gratitude and ways to inculcate the practice of gratitude in our lives.
