Universal: That the aged, marginalized, and those who have no one may find – even within the huge cities of the world – opportunities for encounter and solidarity.

 *NEW* Stewardship Reflections

Feast of Corpus Christi - May 29, 2016

“They all ate and were satisfied.  And when the leftover fragments were picked up, they filled twelve wicker baskets.” Luke 9:17

The story of the Loaves and Fishes shows us that when we share what we have, even if it doesn’t seem like that much, miracles can happen!  Do not think that your gift is too small or insignificant!   God blesses all the gifts we offer and makes them wondrous.
