Dear Friend in the Lord,

Miracles of the Loaves and Fish” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus fed thousands of people with five loaves and two fish.  As the Son of God, He can use His Divine Power to help us live in His Ways, and gain Eternal Salvation.  Ponder on, “Is our faith in Jesus, deep, humble and selfless?  If so, Jesus will perform even more miracles in our lives.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 6:5-11

Jesus saw the crowds approaching and said to Philip, ‘Where can we buy some bread for these people to eat?’ He said this only to put Philip to the test; he himself knew exactly what he was going to do. Philip answered, ‘Two hundred denarii would not buy enough to give them a little piece each.’

One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said, ‘Here is a small boy with five barley loaves and two fish; but what is that among so many?’ Jesus said to them, ‘Make the people sit down.’ There was plenty of grass there, and as many as five thousand men sat down.

Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those who were sitting there; he then did the same with the fish, distributing as much as they wanted.
