We reflected on “Hope” as our theme throughout the year 2017. Our theme for Reflection in 2018 will be the virtue of “Generosity.” We want to explore and reflect on “Being Generous” as our way of being, of living and of acting. I invite all of you to walk with me on this journey of being and becoming generous and learning to be generous and treating ourselves and others generously no matter what life may bring as we continue our journey. Join me in being and becoming generous as our God is generous to us.
Our Sacred Scriptures proclaim the greatness of our God, the abundance of his love, the generosity of his heart and compassion that flows from a heart of Love. Generosity is being mindful of others and looking out for the needs of others! It is other-centeredness. The generosity of our God and that of others calls us to become generous with all that we are and have. May our lives reflect the generosity of our God! Join me on this journey of being and becoming generous as our God is generous to us.
