FAITH BOOK

16th SUNDAY (B) July 22, 2018

Jeremiah 23: 1-6; Psalm 23; Ephesians 2: 13-18; Mark 6: 30-34

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

"[Jesus] saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them,

For they were like sheep without a shepherd."

 

Reflection:

 

When Jesus sees the needy "vast crowd," he immediately spots their severe hungers. They are without a leader. So, first, he will teach them, because their spirits need the food he has for them. They need a shepherd who can teach and direct them; bring order and vision to their lives.

 

So we ask ourselves:

 

  • If Christ were to ask, "For what do you hunger?" how would we answer him?

  • Where might we go to feed the hunger we feel?
