Mark 8:1-10

We know how important the Eucharistic gatherings were to the early Church. There are two accounts of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes in Mark and Matthew and one each in Luke and John.

In this account Jesus is moved with pity for the people.  They have come a great distance, which likely means there are gentiles among them. They are hungry, but rather than send them off to fend for themselves, Jesus feeds them. All are welcome.

Help me to be as compassionate and welcoming as you are, Lord. One kind word or gesture on my part could make all the difference in a person’s feeling welcome at your table.
