Gospel: Mark 8:1-10

Soon afterward, Jesus was in the midst of another large crowd, that obviously had nothing to eat. So he called his disciples and said to them,
“I feel sorry for these people, because they have been with me for three days and now have nothing to eat. If I send them to their homes hungry,
they will faint on the way; some of them have come a long way.” His disciples replied, “Where, in a deserted place like this,


could we get enough bread to feed these people?” He asked them, “How many loaves have you?” And they ­answered, “Seven.”
Then he ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. Taking the seven loaves and giving thanks, he broke them,
and handed them to his disciples to distri­bute. And they distributed them among the people. They also had some small fish.
So Jesus said a blessing, and asked that these be shared as well. The people ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the broken pieces left over,
seven baskets full. Now those who had eaten were about four thousand in number. Jesus sent them away, and imme­diately got into the boat with his disciples,
and went to the region of Dalmanutha.

REFLECTION:
Jesus has commpassion for his people and gives the nourishment they need. The bread that was multiplied by Jesus came from what the disciples offered.
We are also the disciples whom Jesus is as­king, “how much bread do you have?” As his disciples,
we are called to feed our needy brothers and sisters in order to help them continue their journey.
The disciples gave seven bread. Seven is the number of perfection. There is one thing the Lord is asking of us: to put before him all that we are.
Woe to us if we put before the Lord only half of our life of faith. Woe unto us if, before the needy,
we put the responsibility on God not on what we can offer. We don't have to fear: once we share our resour­ces and our life,
God will do His part; what we shall have completely given will be returned a hundred times more.
Everything that we are and have is God’s gift. Let us also share them as gifts.
