It’s a Wonderful Life

I realize that I am out of liturgical season here, but the end of Frank Capra’s Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful Life (which we watched tonight) always reminds me of the miracle of the loaves and fishes. As George Bailey’s friends come forward in joyful procession with the contributions will save him from prison, I am reminded of all the leftovers from that scanty meal that Jesus offered to the multitude. It was in giving himself away that George Bailey became, in his brother Harry’s words, “the richest man in town.”
