Diary of a City Priest

Father Mac’s colleague is obsessed with the rationing process on the day they hand out Thanksgiving turkeys. What do we learn about the effect of attitude upon charitable service from this scene?

What do you think St. Therese meant when she reminded Father Mac; “There is enough for each of us to do working on our own hearts and in our own neighborhoods.”
