GOSPEL REFLECTION FOR YOUTH:
In today’s Gospel is the miracle of Jesus multiplying the 5 Loaves and 2 Fish to feed the hungry crowd who had been with him all day.
He had just heard the news that his cousin John the Baptist had been beheaded. He wanted to go away to be alone, but the crowd pursued him. The Gospel didn’t say Jesus was annoyed that he had to change his plans. Quite the opposite, his “heart was moved with pity” and he set aside his own plans in order to feed the crowd.
Is Jesus’ love and care for each person in that crowd from the Gospel any different than his love for us today? In what ways does he want to feed us…feed you? What are your hungers? Do you think any hunger you have can be fulfilled in welcoming Jesus into your heart and in being his follower?
