How many people can you feed with two fish and five loaves of bread? Jesus fed five thousand.
I believe generosity is contagious. Share a little something with another, whether that be a stranger, friend, neighbor or family, and watch what happens. It seems to spark something inside oneself. Whether that is from guilt, compassion, or a memory of someone helping you, that generosity becomes contagious and we want to do something for someone else. Multiply that just a few times and see how quickly you can reach five thousand people being helped.
Jesus performed a miracle in today’s Gospel. I see that miracle happening in our own parish through generosity. I see it in our communities with helping hands caring for others.
You can be that miracle.
