Reflection

Luke tells about Jesus’ feeding of the great crowd by attributing to him the words and gestures of the Mass. The disciples are given the responsibility of distributing the bread, as they will later do in the Church. With but five loaves and two fish, all are fed to sufficiency; as in the Mass, what is left over is carefully collected. Like Jesus’ cures, this miracle is the sign that God’s kingdom is at hand. Jesus provides not only food for our bodies but satisfies our spiritual hunger. When the disciples wanted to dismiss the crowds who were hungering to hear about God, Jesus welcomes them and makes them into a community. The first reading speaks of Melchizedek, a pagan priest who blessed Abram’s God and offered bread and wine; he prefigures Christ’s universal priesthood. When we participate in the Eucharist we remember Christ’s saving death and are present to its effects, St. Paul explains. Do we make Jesus’ perfect offering our own, thanking God for the wonderful gift of Christ’s body and blood for our nourishment?

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR PRIESTS

June 28th 2019

Catholics worldwide are urged to pray for Priests today on the World Day of Prayer for Priests. The day was begun by St. John Paul II in 2002 with the objective of having all Catholic faithful join in prayer for the sanctification of Priests. This day coincides with the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

SACRAMENTAL MINISTRY
