The gift of the Eucharist is Jesus himself---the BREAD OF LIFE!!  Jesus offers us eternal life here and now when we embrace him as our Lord, Master and Messiah.  May the Lord complete and fulfill our lives so we can do that for others!!

In the gospel this weekend Jesus asks the disciples to feed the large crowd with a few fish and a few loaves of bread.  An impossible task---yet with Jesus things that seem impossible become possible.  If we rely on ourselves we can do nothing, but if we rely on Christ, all things are possible.

Jesus is the Good Shepherd who has compassion for his sheep.  We are transformed by God's love to become shepherds for others offering strength, grace and healing.  How can we be shepherds in our world today in the midst of the tragic discoveries of unmarked graves near former Indian residential schools?  Only through and with Christ can we seek to reconcile the past while also forging a better future.

Christ's power in our lives depends on our openness to Him---the more we draw Him into our lives the more He can heal, transform and strengthen us.  Let us seek ways to open our hearts to Jesus who seeks to fill us with grace, light and hope.  May we also be instruments of Good News so that others may open their lives to our Lord and Saviour!!

Despite the storms that we heard about last Sunday, we need to trust in the Lord.  This weekend we are facing another storm at the death of a loved one and how Jesus brings us life!!  In this miracle we are reminded that not even death can limit Christ's power and love for us.  In times of trouble, we call upon the Lord.  May we be Christ for those around us in need and in storms---offering them hope and love.

What do we do when we are in the midst of the storms of life?  What happens if we feel trapped, overwhelmed and don't know what to do?  We need to turn to Christ who gives us calm in our hearts in the midst of chaos, suffering and darkness.  Jesus is our light, rock, foundation and anchor.  He will always take care of us---how can we be Christ for others during challenging times?

What does the Kingdom of God look like?  How does the kingdom grow?  How can we help build the kingdom that is filled with peace, joy, love and hope in our world so torn apart with hatred, suffering and division?  The Lord will guide us with the help of the gospel this weekend.
