Do you desire to change the world but question what difference could your two tiny fish and your five small loaves possibly make? Gifts given in faith God multiplies and uses!
Your gift to St. Emma Monastery does indeed help change the world for a monastery is about changing hearts – not only the hearts of the nuns but the hearts of people around the world through the nuns’ prayers, their presence and their center of spirituality.
We hear the Gospel message today because those who preceded us not only lived the Faith during their lives but also provided the means for sustaining the Faith after their death. They left legacies, tools for God to use for building His Kingdom. How are you going to promote your Faith after your death? How will your money be used after your death? Who will decide? You? The courts?
