Mt 14: 13-21

Jesus’ need to be alone to grieve for John did not stop him from compassionately attending to the needs of the people who followed him. At the end of the day, the disciples urge Jesus to move on and let the hungry crowds fend for themselves. They should have known he would attend not only to their spiritual needs but to their physical needs as well.

Jesus, you took the bread, blessed, broke and gave it to the people. You did the same at your final meal. We partake in the meal today in remembrance of you and in anticipation of the eternal banquet.
