Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks, he distributed them to the people who were sitting there.  He did the same with the fish, distributing to them as much as they wanted.  – Jn 6:11

Reflection. The feeling of hunger is the body’s way of urging us to take nourishment.  The feeling of longing and emptiness is the soul’s way of reminding us that we hunger for God.  St. Augustine said, “Our hearts will remain restless until they rest in You, O Lord.”

Prayer. Dear Jesus, when I receive You in the Eucharist I know You nourish my soul with the gift of peace and joy.  Help me to abide in You.
