A Sincere Gift (5LB-18)

The two lakes in Israel teach us about the human person. We can either be the Sea of Galilee teeming with life, or be mineral rich, but lifeless like the Dead Sea. Vatican II Document “Gaudium et Spes” (Joy & Hope) says “Man cannot fully find himself except through a sincere gift of himself” (24). St. Damien of Molokai who made a sincere gift of himself in the 1800s to serve lepers in Hawaii and died of leprosy himself did not regret his life or seek that he had more pleasures, ease, and comfort in life. Instead in imitating Christ and dying like a grain of wheat brought forth abundant fruit. As we receive Jesus in the Eucharist we receive his grace and life not to hold, but go out and make a sincere gift of yourself as Jesus Christ. “Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life” like the sea of Galilee. 3/18/18
