This Week’s Gospel Message

Wednesday, July 29th, 2020

This Week’s Gospel Message for Sunday, August 2nd is from Matthew 14:13-21.

“. . .When [Jesus] saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them . . . Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied . . .”

“Jesus felt intense compassion from deep in his gut for these poor people who followed him into the wilderness. The food was hardly enough for just the disciples, let alone a crowd of thousands. But in turning to the Lord the result is able to surpass all human expectation. God provided a miraculous abundance. May we feel emotion to such intensity when we see our neighbor in need.” Source: Pastoral Patterns, Summer 2020
