FAITH BOOK

17th SUNDAY (B) July 29, 2018

2 Kings 4: 42-44; Psalm 145; Ephesians 4: 1-6; John 6: 1-15

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

One of Jesus’ disciples...said to him,

"There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish,

But what good are these for so many?"

 

Reflection:

 

Jesus has noticed the hungers of our world. He asks us the same question he asked his disciples: "Where can we buy enough food for them to eat?" Like his disciples, we see the people’s needs and our own inadequacies as well. We shrug our shoulders and say, "We just don’t have enough to feed them!" But Jesus wants to address their hungers. He takes what few gifts we place at his disposal, our "barley loaves," blesses them and feeds the hungry with them.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What hungers am I being asked to address?

  • What do I have to offer the Lord in service to feed those hungers?
