Feed them Yourselves

Oh, Lord, in today’s Scriptures Jesus asks His disciples to feed the crowd He is speaking to. He also asks the same of us. Jesus sees the hunger in everyone’s heart, for love, for food, for recognition, for Jesus Himself. I feel Jesus is asking all of us to be attentive to the needs of others.

Father, give me the grace today to respond as I can to those around me to do whatever I can to respond to the needs around me. To feed the hungry, to feed the souls and needs of others as You have given us in the corporal and spiritual works of mercy, as Jesus did in His public life, to extent of my own capabilities and limitations. Allow Your Holy Spirit to alert me to someone’s needs. I ask for that grace to see and to respond to the people in need in my life. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
