For the simple fact of life, thank you. Just for being alive at all, even for an instant. Whatever be the joys and sorrows, the exaltations and the pains, thank you for life. It might not have been.
Without it we’d never know love, never look into a beloved face, never know what it means to commit to a cause, to falter and recover, to laugh out loud until it hurts. Without life we’d never meet a hummingbird face to face, snuggle with a pup, make an ice cream sundae for a child.
With life, what isn’t possible?
Life is a share in yours and once given, is given forever. It will take an eternity to begin to say thank you.
A native of the North Shore of Boston, I currently live in Worcester County, Massachusetts. I worked at Boston College as the Acting Director of The Church in the 21st Century Center until August, 2010 and served until November 2016 as Canon for Formation, and Dean of the George Mercer Jr. School of Theology of the Diocese of Long Island. I was happy to serve as Rector at the Church of Saint Anselm of Canterbury in Shoreham, New York from late 2016 to early 2020. I began service as Rector of The Church of Saint Matthew in the city of Worcester on the first day of the fateful month of 2020.
