Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

The readings in the Gospel for a few weeks will be
from John’s Gospel. It will be on the teachings of Jesus
about the Eucharist. Jesus shows the power that He has by
multiplying the loaves and feeding a very large crowd. By
working this miracle, Jesus proved that He had the power
and could fulfill the promise that He was about to make. He
was going to promise that He would give us His flesh to eat
and His blood to drink. Perhaps the miracle of the
multiplication of the loaves and fishes may not have
happened had the little boy not shared his five barley loaves
and two fish. The miracle of Jesus giving of Himself in the
Eucharist may not happen if we do not do our part in
preparation for a worthy reception of Him.
