Richard Rohr's - Loaves & Fishes 

June 5th's Daily Meditation by Richard Rohr

loaves-and-fishes

 

"Jesus’ example of mutual aid was so inspirational to Dorothy Day (1897–1980),
the founder of the Catholic Worker, that she called her book about the movement
Loaves and Fishes". She wrote,

“Young people say, What good can one person do?
What is the sense of our small effort?
They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time, take one step at a time;
we can be responsible only for the one action of the present moment.

But we can beg for an increase of love in our hearts
that will vitalize and transform all our individual actions,
and know that God will take them and multiply them,
as Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes.” [1]

May we all pray for an “increase of love in our hearts” that will awaken, transform, and multiply the impact of our actions.
