Our Generosity

God challenges us to greater generosity, because He wants us 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 often asked to be generous to become who God created us to be.  Catholicism invites us into a paradox: it is in giving that we receive, and we become . . .
