5th August 2019 Monday 18th Week of Ordinary Time - The Dedication of the Basilica of St. Mary Major
Numbers 11:4-15, Matthew 14:13-21
“Bring them to Me”
Isn’t this situation familiar to us? We look at the little that we have and conclude with frustration and discouragement that we do not have enough, we are not worthy to try, we cannot attempt to do so, etc. Can our five loaves and two fish do any good?
Listen to Jesus - “Bring them here to me.” The disciples brought their five loaves and two fish, and Jesus fed the huge crowd. Let us trust that Jesus can and will work miracles through the little that we give to Him.
Question for reﬂection:
1) How can I be more generous with my time today?
2) Do I trust that Jesus can use my life with all that I am and use me to feed the crowd of today? Am I willing to let Him use me as His instrument?
