The St. Sabina Parish Food Drive, II: Spiritual Fulfillment in Service 

Drop off donations in reception through Sunday, March 1.

God’s magnificent love for us is overwhelming and as Christians we seek ways in which we can live out the love of God throughout our daily lives. Children do this very naturally by connecting with their inner spirit without distraction from the world or any inhibition, and we are taught in Matt 18:3, “unless you change and become like a little child you will not enter the kingdom of God.”

Fortunately we have Jesus, our teacher and instructor, to guide us on our Christian journey as we march through the years of egocentric living, yet always en route back toward our spiritual home. Isn’t this what burns inside all of us, this inner yearning for spiritual fulfillment? And don’t we get there when we share God’s love as embodied by Paul in Acts 20:32–35, “And now I commend you to God and to the message of his grace…. We must support the weak remembering the words of Jesus, it is more blessed to give than to receive” and 1 John 4:12, “No one has ever seen God; if we love one another God lives in us and his love is perfected through us.”

We share the love of God through generous acts of giving and we are reminded by Mother Teresa that is not so much a matter of magnitude, “we can do no great things only small things with great love,” and in Matt 9:21–22 “…for where your treasure is there your heart will also be…. The eye is the lamp of the body and if your eye is healthy you will be filled with light”.

Let us all live God’s love by coming together in support of this year’s food drive on behalf of St. Sabina Church.
