Jesus looked lovingly on the crowd and provided for them. Through the Eucharist, God continues to offer food for the journey. At Mass, we offer our lives up and Christ nourishes us at the table of the Lord. We are then dismissed to “go and announce the Gospel,” making our lives nourishment for others. At times we may feel we are living in a deserted place and barren. But we can always come to the Eucharist to eat and be satisfied. We trust that God’s love is bountiful, and we give that love to others.
