This morning’s reflection is quite simple and applies, I think, no matter in what circumstances I find myself. It is a line from the psalm (116) which asks, “How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good he has done for me?” Even in my moments of doubt or self pity or loneliness, if I turn to that question, there is always recognition of some grace that has been mine. Usually I know that I am a very spoiled child of God, but even in darkest times I am willing to admit my good fortune. In addition, I am always aware that there are many people in the world and in my own surroundings who are – at least physically if not  spiritually – much less fortunate than I. It then becomes my responsibility to do what I can to improve circumstances and to pray for all of my brothers and sisters everywhere.
