Let Nothing Be Wasted: Living the Full Power and Joy of the Incarnation

Dominic A. Aquila

Following the miracle of the loaves and fishes, Jesus instructs his disciples to pick up the leftovers. He says, "let nothing be wasted." This instruction also applies to us living in the full light of the Incarnation. God entered human creation and sanctified it. Therefore, everything we do is meant to build up the Kingdom of God—nothing good we do is wasted. In this webinar, Dom Aquila will highlight three practical implications of incarnational humanism for those working in parishes. •Incarnational humanism is a mindset that energizes Christian evangelization. •Many Catholics are concerned about environmental problems, such as climate change, but are often put off by the heated partisan rhetoric underlying it. Incarnational humanism provides the basis for a truly Christian environmentalism. •Parishes are made up of people from all walks of life and vocations. An incarnational humanism energizes and gives great significance and dignity to their work.
