Sacrifices, Big and Small . . .

When my four children were growing up, any time a treat or dessert was being served, the words most frequently voiced were “ME FIRST!” In order to bring their Religion into every phase of their lives, we talked about how we could send a soul from Purgatory to Heaven by making small sacrifices. One time I was dividing the last of the cake midst much pushing and shoving for the biggest piece. I casually mentioned how sad it was that no poor souls would make it to Heaven based on the selfishness I was seeing. Suddenly the pushing and shoving ACCELERATED as the children kept going to the BACK of the line in order to be the ONE saving the souls that day!
