Do What You Can, God Will Do the Rest

"Do what you can, and God will do the rest. That's the promise of the Holy Eucharist -- that if we do what we can in pouring forth ourselves for the love of others, then the love of Jesus will come to fulfill the little bit that we can do, just as he did on that deserted plain near Capernaum. He took those five loaves and two fish, the little bit that the disciples had, and he made sure everyone had enough; and so, if we do what we can, Jesus will do the rest."    - Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, The Peace Pulpit, June 6, 2013
