This week we hear the Gospel of John, Chapter 6. We hear about the Lord feeding a great multitude of people with only five loaves of bread and two fishes.
Jesus feeds the crowd. He meets their needs. This Gospel episode is a foreshadowing of the Eucharist. It reminds us that the Lord looks upon us with love. He feeds and strengthens us. The presence of the Lord in the Eucharist is His great gift of Himself to us.
As we remember and reflect on this wondrous gift, this beautiful mystery, may we grow in faith, love, and respect for Our Lord, present to us in the Blessed Sacrament.
For your information, this past Friday, July 23rd, I had an appointment with the pulmonary doctor. I will let you know the outcome of this meeting at a later date. Unfortunately, I am still retaining fluid after over four months. They can’t seem to find out why.
Have A Great Bethany Beach Week!
