St Anthony Church Newsletter
In this week's Gospel, “his heart was moved …” Jesus did not merely feel a fleeting sentimental concern for the vast crowd. He felt a movement from his interior that strongly compelled him into action to meet the needs of the people. Their souls hungered for the word of life, so Jesus generously supplied what was needed even though the apostles and Jesus were trying to get away to rest after ministry! In other words, the crowds interrupted their plan for rest after a long day. Interruptions, we all experience them and they can be a source of irritation. But they can also be an invitation to bless. We have the power to choose which!
