For some of us, the world appears to provide
only a fixed quantity of each resource -
a limited amount of food, of money,
of love, of success, of appreciation.
For others, life is unlimited.
Their world expands with the generosity, compassion,
inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.

which have given us their light when the sun was gone.

in whom is embodied all goodness,
and who directs all things for the good of his children.

natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.
