A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes

"They ate and were filled."

Today there are many hungry and poor people who would have joined Jesus and his disciples. Unfortunately, wherever we go we see and read about the poor hungry people in this world. As we celebrate Eucharist and listen to His Word, we remember the holy sacrifice of Jesus as He offers Himself again, on our behalf, to the Father.

Psalm 116 asks us: "What return can I make to the Lord for all He has done for me?" We all know how many food kitchens are in our neighborhood but do we know if they have enough food to provide for all! Do they have enough help to distribute the food and prepare it for the hungry in your town? This is one of our calls, this is our reminder to do as Jesus did, showing our love for them, and feeding them.

Today we can thank God for the bountiful gifts that we receive at each meal. Now let us pray that we have the grace to ensure that the hungry people in our neighborhood are fed as Jesus fed the large crowd assembled before him.

O Heavenly Father,
thank you for the bountiful gifts
which we receive through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
