Daily homily thoughts, 6/12

Sometimes we feel like we’re running out of steam, like there’s nothing more to give. Like the widow in our first reading.  Listen to God’s promise: “‘The jar of flour shall not go empty, nor the jug of oil run dry….”  She had next to nothing, and had to provide for her son.  Then Elijah comes and wants her to make a cake for him instead.  She trusts.  And the jar does not go empty.
