Reading this has brought home to me a deeper meaning of superabundance, and the last paragraph will help me to correct a rather lax attitude at times towards God's gift of all that is in my life, and my life itself.
I remember being puzzled when hearing a priest pray that we should be generous in the receiving of gifts - now I know what he meant, thanks to you, Deacon Dan.


We had a visiting priest give the homily, and he said something which really struck me and that I find in your message here too, dd; he said that when Jesus asked the Apostles to give Him the loaves and fishes, basically He was telling them, give me what you've got. Give me what you've got, and you will see how I will multiply it so that it is more than enough for everyone. We have to really believe Him, and give Him what we have, as little as it may seem to work with.
