Transcript of audio:
This week's Gospel describes the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fish. Many of us know the story of how Jesus took five barley loaves and two fish, gave thanks and shared them with the vast crowd. No one went away hungry.
What does the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves say to us today?
Perhaps Jesus teaches us by demonstrating Godís gracious abundance in the miracle of the multiplication. We share in and receive Godís lavish gift of love in our need. As Jesus cared for the crowd, God cares for us and nourishes each of us.
Our gratitude for Godís gift of love moves us to share with our neighbor, even when it seems we do not have sufficient time or energy Ė Godís gracious abundance provides more than enough to do His will.
