Giving

Parish Retreats have a way of helping the children of God stay focused during Lent. This will be the last day of ours. Yesterday I went to LaSalette and spent a peaceful quiet time there. What I enjoyed the most was slowly going around the Rosary Pond and reflecting and praying the stations there. Mainly the ones of the Sorrowful Mysteries.

A week of giving and a week of reflecting. Giving away to someone less fortunate, when a person has gone through this themselves, giving what little you have for another. Like the scripture where the woman gives her only income while the rest give meagerly in their abundance. I too saw this as well among those who I pray with. It's one thing to organize and gather for the needy, but when there is abundance and not offer the extra what good then is the deed.

Why is it that there are more poor than should be. The answer is because we all hoard and fail to do what is right. So much excess that people in our own towns and cities could benefit, but many Christians fail big time in letting go and giving up the extras.
