When have you been the recipient of someone’s abundant generosity?

Aside from Christ’s abundant generosity on the cross and in the Eucharist ...

and our Church fathers’ abundant generosity in handing down the faith by learning, living, defending, and dying for the faith ...

and all the Clergy and Religious throughout the centuries and also here and now in service to us for God ...

and all those who have sacrificed to gain and maintain our freedom ...

I have been utterly amazed at the generosity within my own parish. I know somebody has to pay for our church buildings, appointments, upkeep, staffing, and "goodies" like bibles and calendars and magazines and such items. I can barely tithe to my church (and it’s something I really need to work on). It can only be because others in my parish have tithed generously that I too can benefit from all that my parish has to offer.

It is with a very grateful heart that I attend daily mass in full religious freedom to receive, from a priest, the Holy Word and the precious body and blood of our Lord in a facility that is befitting of our glorious God.

Let us not take God’s grace for granted.
