The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Gospel Reading: LK 9:11-17

"Give them some food yourselves."

If today we were to confront five thousand hungry men and the Lord would tell us what He said two thousand years ago to the disciples, “Give them some food yourselves,” would we use our faith and do a similar miracle?

St. Paul in today’s second reading says, “I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you.” Have we in a similar way practiced to hand over what we have been receiving from Jesus? Perhaps most of the times we would find that we have not even learnt to receive from Jesus, how then can we think of giving what we do not have?

Receiving and giving is all that the Lord expects from us when He says, “Love one another as I have loved you.” He loved us to the extent of giving us everything without holding back anything including His life.

The fear in us of losing what we have, has played spoilsport all our lives and we have fallen short of Jesus’s expectations from us.

If only we learn to give wholeheartedly will we receive in abundance from Him. For the one who has little whatever he has will be taken away and to the one who has been faithful in small things, will be given even more.
