Deo Gratias


Deo Gratias is Latin for “Thanks be to God.” Remembering to give thanks for all of our blessings, big and small, helps us to find God in our everyday moments and gives us an attitude of gratitude!

This week I’m thankful for:

  1. The Resurrection! Death and sin are conquered and God came to us and delivered each of us.
  2. Easter. I had a terrific day beginning with mass. They insisted that my friend and I sit up in the choir loft so we got a bird’s eye view of mass and were surrounded by outstanding singers. They did justice to Handel’s Halleluiah! At the end I got this Easter egg, which says “God loves you” in Chinese.
  3. Easter brunch. The Mercure Hotel had colored eggs, chocolate bunnies and lots of delicious food. Twelve of us went and the conversation was great. Pictures here.
  4. Spring is coming and we’ve got lovely cherry blossoms on campus.
  5. My holidays this week. No classes from Wednesday to Sunday. Yep, we have to teach on Sunday to make up for Friday. Go figure.
  6. I love the Latin with Chinese
