“Philip answered him, ‘Two hundred days’ wages worth of food would not be enough for each of them to have a little.’ One of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to him, ‘There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?’”
What might have been Philip and Andrew’s thoughts about Jesus when he asked the impossible of them—providing food for all those people?
When have you felt helpless in view of a service asked of you?
To whom did you turn at that time?
What would help you more spontaneously look to Jesus for your answer?
Heritage word—“Jesus, the Eternal Word, challenges us by what He taught, ‘Love one another as I have loved you.’”
(Sister Mary Sujita, 9th Superior General of the Sisters of Notre Dame)
