Thank you message in the grotto at Our Lady of Guadelope Church
in New Orleans.Added by parishioners in gratitude
for prayers or miracles granted.
Gratitude begins with awareness
And fuses with love;
Embellished by the gentle ticking
Of time and seasons;
By infinite acts of loyalty,
Steadfast dedication and kindness;
Constancy and love:
A devotion born
From the Heart of God;
Gratitude thus Gathers
In the Face of Grace.
