Blessed Are They who Hunger and Thirst for RighteousnessFor they shall be satisfied
Today’s gospel is the second account in the gospel of Matthew in which Jesus multiplies loaves and fish to feed a multitude of people. Today’s account is the feeding of four thousand. With seven loaves and few small fish, Jesus feeds them all with seven basketfuls left over.
This beautiful account reminds us of the generosity of God. He always provides more than we need. After last week’s holiday of Thanksgiving, this fact should be easy for us to recall.
