Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Five loaves and two fish

“Before the suffering, loneliness, poverty, and difficulties of so many people, what can we ourselves do? Complaining doesn't resolve anything, but we can offer the little that we have, like the lad in the Gospel. We surely have a few hours of time, certain talents, some skills.... Who among us doesn’t have "five loaves and two fish" of his own? We all have them! If we are willing to place them in the Lord’s hands, they will be enough to bring about a little more love, peace, justice, and especially joy in the world.”—Pope Francis

Reflection:
What are the ‘five loaves and two fish’ you have to place in the Lord’s hands? How is it that so little can become enough to make a difference?
