Grace

Our readings for this weekend are filled with grace, the free gift that God is. Our relationship with God gets off on the wrong foot the moment we see it in an “economic” or calculating way. God, who needs nothing from us, simply wants to share his life with us. And this is why he says, through the prophet Isaiah, “All you who are thirsty, come to the water!”

The Loop of Grace

It all begins with grace, and it all ends with grace. Bernanos’ country priest summed up Christianity with the phrase “Toute est grace,” everything is grace. God gives graciously, gratuitously, superabundantly–and then we are called to respond with a similar exuberance. The more we give back to God, the more we get, and then we must give that back again, so as to get even more in return. This is the loop of grace which is spoken of from beginning to end of the Bible. And all of our readings for today touch on it specially.

Loaves and Fishes

The compassion of Jesus creates the Church. We are the instruments of the Lord’s love for the world. How do we cooperate with him? By giving him even the little that we have and waiting for him to multiply it!
