The Body and Blood of Christ May 29, 2016

Today’s Gospel is an event in the life of Jesus that was very special for his followers. This is the only miracle story told in all four Gospels! All four tell of Jesus feeding thousands of people with very little food. As we hear, Jesus was speaking to the crowds about God’s Kingdom and He was healing people who needed to be cured. But as the day went on and evening was coming, the apostles approached Jesus with the practical problem of feeding so many people. Instead of being worried, Jesus took the small amount of food that was there: five loaves and the two fish, thanked God for his goodness, blessed the food, and then shared it with the people. Thousands had enough to eat! How did he do that? We cannot ever understand, but Jesus’s faith in God points the way for us toward an answer.

Questions:
1. Before Jesus performed this miracle, he told his apostles to feed all these people. How do you think they felt at that moment?
2. Can you think of some time in your life where you thought that Jesus was asking too much of you? What happened?
3. In addition to taking care of the people’s hunger, what do you think Jesus was trying to help them to understand about God and his care for them?
