Weekend Reflections for 7/24/15
Apparently God has always intended that part of being a prophet (one who communicates God's mind and heart) involves feeding those who hunger. The prophet Elisha (850 B.C.) proclaims the desire of God : that "they shall eat and there shall be some left over."
The crowd that follows Jesus and flocks to him does so because they want to see him work more signs . (The sign they get is a "mighty work" that will reveal an even deeper part of God's desire for them.) Jesus sees them coming and his first thought is: how shall we feed them? Jesus takes, blesses and distributes more than they can eat. And they say "This is truly the Prophet, the one who has come into the world." The greatest sign Jesus works is handing himself over to us as the Bread of Life, his total gift of self . What wondrous love is this...!
