April 21. Mom shared, “We all know this story. Whenever I hear of Jesus feeding 5000 people with the 5 loaves and 2 fish that the little boy had in his lunch box my mind sticks with that child. That was really quite a lot for 1 child. What made him come forward in such a big crowd and offer what he had?  There must have been other people who had brought some food along and didn’t offer to share. What kind of person was he and would he maybe have become a great disciple when he grew up?  

Scripture. Jesus knew what he would do. Andrew said to Jesus, “there is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are they among so many?”  Jesus said, “Make the people sit down.” He then took the loaves and when he had given thanks he distributed them. John 6:1-15   Pope Francis.   In the concern for children Jesus goes so far as to present them as teachers on account of their simple trust and spontaneity towards others.  “Unless you become like children you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.” AL 18.   Reflect, share and act, pray.  Who is most generous in our family?
