14Now the men to feed there numbered about five thousand, Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Have them sit down in groups of about fifty.”Luke 9:14-17
16Then taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing over them, broke them and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd.
17They all ate and were satisfied. And when the leftover fragments were picked up, they filled twelve wicker baskets.
Today’s Bible Quote of the Day Reflections
Jesus manifested Himself as the Food that lasts forever. He revealed that He is the Bread of Life, Bread that never gets finished.
Out of only two fish and five loaves of bread, Jesus feeds a mammoth crowd, who among them were a whopping five thousand men. This was a miracle. What human beings can’t comprehend we call it a miracle.
Jesus looked up to heaven and blessed the loaves and fish the same way He did during the Last Supper when He said, “Take this all of you and eat it, for This is My Body.”
Today we are celebrating the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, The Corpus Christi. We celebrate the Transubstantiation of the Bread and Wine offered at the alter into The Most Holy Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. We always do this during the Liturgy of the Eucharist.
The Body of Christ is Placed in the Monstrance and is exposed to the general public through a procession in the streets.
Jesus instructed us to remember Him during the Holy Eucharist by eating His Body and drinking His Blood. Through this, we will dwell in Jesus and He will dwell in us and we will be raised on the Last day.
Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, I love You, trust You and believe in You. Forgive me of my sins so that when I receive Your Body and Blood, I may live in You and You in Me forever. Amen
