They all ate and were satisfied

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 6:34-44.)
Jesus assertion only God can make: He is the true bread of heaven that can make happy the deepest starvation we experience. The feeding of the five thousand shows the remarkable kindness of God and his great sympathy towards us. In the increase of the loaves and fishes we see a sign and a symbol of what God at all times does. When God gives, he gives in abundance. He gives more than we need for ourselves that we may have amazing to share with others, particularly those who not have what they need. God takes the small we have and multiplies it for the fine of others. Do you trust in God's stipulation for you and do you share freely with others, particularly those who lack? What is the meaning of this wonder? The miraculous feeding of such a huge multitude pointed to God's stipulation of manna in the wilderness for the people of Israel under Moses' control. This food prefigured the true heavenly bread which Jesus would offer his followers. The symbol of the growth of the loaves when the Lord says the approval, breaks and distributes from first to last his disciples prefigures the superabundance of the sole bread of his Eucharist or Lord’s dinner. Jesus’ disciples wanted to propel them away at the end of the day because they did not have the resources to feed them. They even complained how much currency it would take to feed such a multitude – at least six month’s salary! Jesus took the small they had – five loaves and two fish – and giving thanks to his divine Father, circulated to all until they were satisfied of their starvation. They took up what was left over, twelve baskets full so that nothing would be exhausted. What can satisfy the sincere longing and desire of the heart – apart from God unaccompanied? Do you consider that is true? Of all the miracles Jesus did, this is the only one which is repeated in all four gospels. A great huge number had gathered to hear Jesus, no doubt since they were hungry for the word of living.
