17TH  SUNDAY (B) July 28, 2024

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

by 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:

 

Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks,
and distributed them to those who were reclining,

and also, as much of the fish as they wanted.

 

Reflection:

 

After Jesus multiplies the food, he himself distributes it. He is our host, the one whom we can trust to feed our hungers. He will be with us to nourish us at each stage of life’s journey until, at last, we arrive safely home for the everlasting banquet with him and each other.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

  • What hungers are we experiencing today as we gather around the Eucharistic table?

  • Who are the hungry we are called by Christ to feed? Where? How?
