The people were hungry for food and for the words that would give them life and hope.
The miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and the fishes was a prototype or a foreshadowing of the miracle of the Eucharist.
Jesus continued to feed His people with His teachings, His love, and His giving of self as He does now with us.
The Eucharist is a great miracle, in that we receive the actual body and blood of Christ – it is the greatest gift Jesus gave us.
How do we connect our hunger for life and Jesus with the Eucharist?
Do we see the real potential it has for us?
