Sermon Introduction –
Jesus once fed 5000 people with a couple loaves of bread and a few fish. It is a miraculous work of generosity and kindness. How can we see this as a calling to kindness today?
Introduction to this week’s readings –
In today’s first reading God invites all who are hungry or thirsty to receive food and drink without cost. Jesus feeds the hungry multitude and reveals the abundance of God. At the eucharistic table we remember all who are hungry or poor in our world today. As we share the bread of life, we are sent forth to give ourselves away as bread for the hungry.
