Our Generosity

______________________________________________________________

______________________________________________________________

God challenges us to greater generosity to live happily dispensing a portion of our surplus.  Ironically, numerous studies have indicated the poor are more generous than the wealthy.

Generosity is the external proof of the Gospel in our lives. We cannot love God if we do not love our neighbor, and generosity is supreme love to our neighbor.  We are asked to be generous to become who God created us to be.  Catholicism invites us to a paradox: “in giving we receive and become . . .”
