This gospel reading is for me a reminder how much I should appreciate those who minister as Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers and those who bring Holy Communion to those who are sick and homebound. This is a special yet very important ministry. The priest or deacon is not always able to take care of all his parishioners. That’s why it is important to welcome those who are willing to bring and share Jesus with others. When you look carefully at what Jesus did after the miraculous multiplication of the food in that deserted place, you will realize that Jesus commended His disciples to share it with others, to distribute the food to them. “He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then, taking the seven loaves he gave thanks, broke them, and gave them to his disciples to distribute, and they distributed them to the crowd. They also had a few fish. He said the blessing over them and ordered them distributed also.” Jesus didn’t distribute the food but asked others to do it, to make sure everyone there was fed. Perhaps you are also called to be the one that would go and bring the food from heaven to those who are hungry for it.
