Five Loaves and Two Fish

We sell a small book at St. Mary's called "Five Loaves and Two Fish" by Cardinal Francis Xavier Nguyen Van Thuan, a Vietnamese Bishop imprisoned for thirteen years by the Communist government. His story alone is amazing but this small book, these small bites relate his daily struggles to our daily lives in this world. His biographer says, "Indeed, the Cardinal's personal Magnificat reflects a great humility, a great joy, and the theological virtue of hope. It calls each of us to give to God the little we have with great confidence that he will turn our small gifts into great wonders." Eighty-four pages packed with instructions for a virtuous life. Ways to live. Ways to feed. A great read for the New Year.
