The Miracle of the Loaves and Fish:
Gospel Reflection on John 6:1-15. Sunday July 25, 2021
In this week’s Gospel, we see how the miracle of the loaves and fish happened. This miracle teaches us about the gift we receive in the Eucharist, when the bread and wine become Body and Blood of Christ. Just as Jesus made the five barley loaves and two fish enough for the crowd of five thousand people, Jesus will also work within us to make our service fruitful. This week when you reread the Gospel with your family, discuss: When Jesus saw that the crowd was hungry, what did He do? What do you think happened? Ask your children to recall a time when their contribution helped everyone to complete the task or accomplish a goal. How did they feel about themselves afterwards? From this we learn what is meant by Paul’s teaching, “it is in giving that we receive” (Acts 20:35). It is an even greater gift when we offer ourselves to God in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, knowing that we are imperfect, yet believing that we will be transformed by the Blessed Sacrament into the work of the Spirit in the world. God has given us many gifts to share, and in the Eucharist, He gives us Spiritual Food for our journey in the world.
