This week’s Monday Meditation is one worth returning to time and again, and comes from a medieval Christian who became a mystic.

 

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is “Thank you,” that will suffice.

– Eckhart von Hochheim O.P.*

 

* Meister Eckhart (c. 1260-1328) was a German mystic, philosopher and theologian. You may find and read additional examples of his teachings here, and may also learn more about his life and work by visiting The Eckhart Society’s website.
