A good food that comes with promises.

"They all ate and were satisfied." (Mark 6: 42).

Tuesday 7th of January 2020 is the feast of St Raymond of Peñafort, (1175 - 1275), Dominican Priest. Raymond is known in history for two key contributions: Like the Curé of Ars, he had an extraordinary charism in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Ask Jesus to lead you to such a priest. One confession is all you need to turn around your life. Raymond wrote volumes which are part of the Canon Law.

Our Scripture for today proclaims: "They all ate and were satisfied." (Mark 6: 42). What does this mean? For me, this points to the immense generosity of God. The Scripture is from the story of the multiplication of loaves where Jesus fed 5000 men and there were 12 baskets of leftover. Remember the story of the manna in the desert where a whole nation ate of the heavenly food for years. Both the manna and today's incident of the Multiplication of loaves point to the Eucharist. The Eucharist is a daily food that shows the kindness and generosity of God as perhaps no other thing can show. Day after day, millions are fed all over the world. "They all ate and were satisfied." (Mark 6: 42).

Thank You Jesus for this abundant food of your Body and Blood.
