"The man who is wise will see his life as more like a reservoir than a canal. The canal simultaneously pours out what it receives. The reservoir retains the water till it is filled, then discharges the overflow without loss to itself. You too must learn to await this fullness before pouring out your gifts." -St. Bernard of Clairvaux

In his last official talk as a youth minister at St. Bernadette's, Jim unpacks this profound piece of wisdom from St. Bernard, sharing how he has seen the "Principle of Overflow" in operation throughout his life.
