David Steindl Rast

A Grateful Heart with Brother David Steindl-Rast


Program Description

Gratefulness is the key, says this extraordinary Benedictine monk, to fullness of life, true prayer and effective action in the world. “If you practice gratefulness,” he says, “it leads you into all the attitudes that all the great traditions have promoted.” Brother David tells of his own personal search, from a childhood in Nazi-occupied Austria to his explorations of Buddhism, modern physics and meaning in modern Christianity. “Most of our day is gift after gift,” he has discovered, “if we wake up to it.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
