Masks are Highly Recommended

At the beginning of the pandemic, Bishop Noonan, mandated the wearing of masks in the church out of compassionate care for one another. With the advancement of the vaccine and the relaxation of the requirements of the CDC, we have updated our protocols to make the masks now HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Weekly Reflection

Jesus Gave them as Much as they Wanted

07-25-2021We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 46, No. 2

Jesus is followed by a large crowd in today's Gospel, like the sheep without a shepherd we heard him encounter last week, and he finds a way to fill their needs and serve them all. He serves them quite literally, multiplying the loaves and fish so that thousands of people have not just enough to eat, but more than enough, more left over than they had in the first place. Next week we will hear Jesus call himself the bread of life, but today he shows us. He is the source of our sustenance, each time we come together to celebrate the Eucharist, just as he was two thousand years ago on this mountain. Significantly, in both of today’s readings that involve the miraculous multiplication of food for the holy man, Elisha.

In the Gospel it is a child, surely not expecting the pivotal role he will play in this event. In both cases, the Lord transformed something that ordinary people produced and offered so that it is able to satisfy everyone in need. What can you offer to people in need that the Lord can transform to satisfy more than you ever expected?

Jesús les Dio de Todo lo que Quisierion

Jesús es seguido por una gran multitud en el Evangelio de hoy, como la oveja sin pastor que le oímos encontrar la semana pasada, y encuentra la manera de satisfacer sus necesidades y servirles a todos. Los sirve literalmente, multiplicando los panes y el pescado para que miles de personas no solo tengan lo suficiente para comer, sino más que suficiente, más de lo que tenían al principio. La semana que viene escucharemos a Jesús llamarse a sí mismo el pan de vida, pero hoy nos lo muestra. Él es la fuente de nuestro sustento, cada vez que nos reunimos para celebrar la Eucaristía, tal como lo fue hace dos mil años en esta montaña. Significativamente, en las dos lecturas de hoy que involucran la multiplicación milagrosa de alimentos para el santo hombre, Eliseo. En el Evangelio es un niño, seguramente sin esperar el papel fundamental que desempeñará en este evento. En ambos casos, el Señor transformó algo que la gente común producía y ofrecía para que pudiera satisfacer a todos los necesitados.

¿Qué puedes ofrecer a las personas necesitadas que el Señor pueda transformar para satisfacer más de lo que esperaban?
