In case any of them had been in doubt before, this sign made it clear. Jesus was the Messi-ah. The people said, "This is truly the Prophet, the one who is to come into the world." Each person in attendance had a personal experience of the power and providence of the Lord that day when they ate their fill. Jesus not only met their needs, but he went above and beyond this by multiplying the loaves and fishes in such abundance. It was as if he was saying, "I want you to have what you need and more. And I have the power to provide it for you."
This miracle-working, food-producing, need-meeting Jesus is the same Jesus that we believe in. This is the same man that we call our savior. This is the Lord we pray to and the One to whom we entrust our lives. This ancient Gospel story is not irrelevant to our lives; it is also part of our story, here, today. Jesus can also provide for us. He has the power, and the desire, to give us all that we need and even more. He wants to feed us, too, with a satisfied and abundant life, a life of lasting fulfillment.
You can find a form in the narthex, parish office, or by visiting
our Religious Education Page.
