The Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes

Pope Benedict XVI: "The miracle did not come from nowhere, it came from an ordinary boy's desire to share what he had. Jesus does not ask us what we do not possess, but shows us that if each of us offers the little we have, a miracle can always happen. God is able to multiply every one of our small deeds of love and make us share in His gift."

So too with music, which has the attribute the permits infinite sharing and duplication, just as in the story. Musicians give what they have and then watch miracles happen. God multiplies our deeds of love when we share his gift.
