Saturday of the 5th Week in Ordinary Time

May today’s gospel make us pause and think about how we use food. Especially in those times of food insecurity experienced by so many families. Let the fragments from our kitchens inspire us to find ways to share the bounty of our tables with those who have little — to rethink our attitudes about leftovers as opportunities to give — even to purposely prepare extra that we can share. Let’s continue the miracle that Jesus performs in today’s gospel, to feed and heal others by our simplest, unremarkable fragments of kindness and charity.
