John 6: 1-14

"The  Eucharist is a precious good, a treasure whose value cannot be measured, it is the Bread of life, it is Jesus that makes Himself food, support and strength for our daily path and open the road to eternal life; it is the greatest gift that Jesus left us" (Pope Benedict XVI)

My dear friends, Jesus teaches us that it is in sharing the little that we have that everyone around us can have enough. When we look around us, we see so much greed, so much hoarding, so much individualism that stares us in the face. Let this reality challenge us in the light of our gospel message today. Secondly, Jesus invites us to come to Him as we are so that He may make us whole. Thirdly, He offers us His Body and Blood in the Eucharist so that we may eat and drink and never be hungry or thirsty again. Let us open our eyes to see these needs; let us   our ears to hear this invitation; let us open hearts to feel and to respond in generosity and love.
