2 Fish and Five loafs of bread
Jesus Feeds five thousand men....
I attended the mass of the Feast held in the Plenary Hall of the PICC, and the sermon talks about the miracles of Jesus in feeding five thousand men. Fr Titus, the presider of the mass shared his thoughts of the miracle.
He said that during that time, Men usually travel places at a very long period of time. Sometimes they travel from one month upto three months or so.. So what they did before they travel is prepare food or "baon". put it in their bags or packs and off they went.... So the idea was some of these men happened to pass by the gathering of people where Jesus would preach, teach or heal sick people....Yes its true that 2 fish and 5 loafs of bread is multiplied and miracles did happen...and one of this miracle is the men with baons, share their food to those who have none and are hungry...In Short the miracle here is the ACT OF GIVING..Giving in a way that they were not thinking of what's left for me or Giving in the real heart...or bukas palad na pagbibigay sa kapwa...Today's reading talks about how abundant God's Blessing and Love that if we only have the heart to do it nobody will go hungry or even die because of hunger...
Abundance of Gods Love is also to be shared. Huwag maging madamot sa pagbibigay ng pagmamahal sa kapwa mo. Ang bawat isa sa atin ay pinagkalooban ng Pag ibig ng Diyos kaya tayo ay may responsibilidad na ibahagi din ito sa kapwa natin lalo na sa mga nangangailangan.
Lord, Today I thank you for all the blessings and grace you have poured in me abundantly everyday.
Today, I asked you to help me become more like you when it comes to giving to people specially who are need. May you always give me the courage, conviction, commitment in spreading your word in my family and community. Grant me the determination to help my community specially the Emmaus Music Ministry. May you always give them the heart of change and commited servants of your people and the church.I pray all these with a trusting heart,in Jesus name, Amen!
