Advent with Meister Eckhart Day 2

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.

I am in London’s Tate Modern, on the South Bank. And I do something strange…I make a donation.

They always ask for one; I never make one.

But today the money slips easily from my pocket. It almost laughs itself into the donations box and I think I know why:


I want to say thank you for all the good times we’ve had in this spacious pile of bricks; give a financial nod to all those whose vision and hard work nurtures and supports this gracious city space – a cathedral without the pews and dead knights.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Gratitude is a force of its own, a moment of deep re-creation; a turning of the soul to heaven.

And if, along the way, our only prayer is thank you, it will be enough.
