Dinner: The Experience of Generosity, Ages 5-10 (9/24/17)

Below is a prayer with which to start your meal and then discussion questions to explore this topic with your family while you eat.



Dearest Lord,

Teach me to be generous;

Teach me to serve You as You deserve;

To give and not to count the cost,

To fight and not to heed the wounds,

To toil and not to seek for rest,

To labor and not to ask for reward,

[except] that of knowing I am doing Your Will. Amen.

-Prayer of St. Ignatius Loyola
