Faith itself grows when we give generously and sacrificially.

I'm the most free when I don't cling too tightly,
but instead live by simple trust,
wisely managing what is entrusted to me
for a relatively brief period of time.

"I have asked many pastors, "Pastor has a parishoner ever come to you on any occasion and said, 'Father, you have over-thanked me for my generosity?'

"Never ever has a pastor said they that this has occurred."
