Readings: Kings: 4:42-42; Ephesians 4:1-6; John 6:1-15

Originally delivered on July 24, 1988

Today’s Gospel is the miracle of the loaves and fishes feeding 5,000. We are reminded that through this miracle, Jesus shows us that we already have more than enough for the hungry and the hurting. The solution is in our hands for our world’s problems. Fr. Healy challenges us to be bold and share our treasures with our marginalized and hungry sisters and brothers, both as individuals and as a nation. Are we living our espoused values?
