St. Peter Julian Eymard (1811-1868) 
Born in La Mure d'Isère in southeastern France, Peter Julian's faith journey
drew him from being a priest in the Diocese of Grenoble (1834) to joining
the Marists (1839) to founding the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament
In addition to those changes, Peter Julian coped with poverty, his father's
initial opposition to Peter's vocation, serious illness, a Jansenistic
striving for inner perfection and the difficulties of getting diocesan and
later papal approval for his new religious community.  For more, follow the

When Moses heard the people, family after family, crying at the entrance of
their tents, so that the LORD became very angry, he was grieved. ?Why do you
treat your servant so badly?? Moses asked the Lord. ?Why are you so
displeased with me
that you burden me with all this people? Was it I who conceived all this
people? ~Numbers 11:4b-15

They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the fragments left over
? twelve wicker baskets full. Those who ate were about five thousand men,
not counting women and children. ~Matthew 14:13-21

Moses has a hard time with the people he is leading.  They are griping and
complaining and not at all grateful for all God has given them.  But God is
eternally generous and offers his people great bounty.  We can appreciate
His bounty despite our human weaknesses, failings and sinfulness.

I pray that I may appreciate God's goodness to me.  I pray that I may strive
to be generous with the many gifts God has given me.
