More Food than We Can Imagine

Jesus spoke to the crowds about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed to be cured.
The day was drawing to a close, and the twelve came to him and said, â€˜Send the crowd away, so that they may go into the surrounding villages and countryside, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a deserted place.â€™ But he said to them, â€˜You give them something to eat.â€™ They said, â€˜We have no more than five loaves and two fishâ€”unless we are to go and buy food for all these people.â€™ For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, â€˜Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.â€™ They did so and made them all sit down. And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces.

Thank you Mike. Like you this feast has special significance for me. Sixty seven years ago on the feast of Corpus Christi I made my choice to minister with and for the people of God, and since then the Eucharist has been the food that has enabled me to do that. May we continue to be fed and support each other on the journey. God bless and much love, Ann
