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 pro-vides not only food for our bodies but satisfies our spiritual hunger. When the disciples want-ed to dismiss the crowds who were hungering to hear about God, Jesus welcomes them and makes them into a community. The first read-ing speaks of Melchizedek, a pagan priest who blessed Abram’s God and offered bread an wine; he prefigures Christ’s universal priest-hood. 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?
