ST. TIKHON OF CYPRUS: As a young may Tikhon gave out bread to those in need angering his father. Young man pointed out the Gospel verse that says we will received a ‘hundredfold’ from God what we give to others. In this case the father’s granary was miraculously filled. In our everyday life we need to be careful to not encourage our children to read and live the Gospel and then become angry when they try to apply it. This gives the impression that Gospel teachings are something to be ignored and the Faith doesn’t apply to daily life.
