April 8, 2016 (John 6:1-15)

“Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those…” This incident, obviously, has Eucharistic overtones. Jesus fed the crowds; He continues to feed us today with His Body and Blood. Modern people have lost the significance of food. It was considered a symbol of God’s Providence: “Blessed are You, Lord God King of the World, Who gives us bread from the earth.” We need Jesus to nourish us so we can be a people of service to others.
