St. Ignatius of Loyola learned to find fruit, that is, the effect or consequence of action. More important than our actions is the action of God in, with and for humans. One grows to find fruit and to offer it the more one savors one's own life and all creation. I hope my posts help you feel that finding fruit is a profitable way of living.

Gratitude Is It
Gifts surround us each moment daily. Honing our senses to notice them is a living exercise. David Bayne counseled to “begin with gratitude.” He mentioned that gratitude is foun-
dational to Ignatian spirituality, and he testified to the importance of giving time each day to being grateful.
Along the way he quoted from a classic essay about and how to do that. At the end of David’s brief post is a link to that essay with its accurate and descriptive subtitle, “Praying Backwards Through Your Day.” For it gratitude to Dennis Hamm, S.J.! ________________________________________________________________________ Sunset in Park is a public domain image.
