WEEKLY THOUGHTS 18th SUNDAY IN ORDIANRY TIME AUGUST 2nd 2020.
Dear Friends, welcome to the celebration of the first Sunday in August of 2020. Let be thankful to God for all the graces and blessings received in the past month of July. Let us continue to entrust ourselves to God’s care and providence. Let continue to pray for our sick brothers and sisters and all in life difficulties.
In a special way, let us pray for all the families who have lost their loved ones.
Let us pray for Carol Barbarossa who lost her dear mum Cecy.
Let us pray for Jean Borelli who lost her daughter Laura Borelli.
Raugh Oviedo of Holy Infant lost his dear son Carlos Oviedo.
May the Jesus source of all consolation be close to Carol and Jean and Raugh at this time of loss and grief. May the soul of Cecy, Laura and Carlos attain the eternal joy and glory with the Saints.
The gospel reading for us today is about the multiplication of the five loaves and 2 fish brought to Jesus to feed the 5,000 hungry people.
We are told that the disciples that the disciples realized that the people were hungry. They asked Jesus as a solution to send them away to the village in order to buy food as they were in a deserted place.
We see how Jesus insisted that the disciples give the hungry people food other than sending them away. Their answer to this challenge revealed their own helplessness as they pointed out the only available two fish and five loaves of bread. Jesus wants to teach us never to under-rate the small contribution one can do or make to solve a problem even undertaking a project. It is for this reason when one requests for help, the agency would always require to state the local contribution.
The little generous offerings we make or give can make big change and impact on the peoples’ lives. Please, let us continue to be generous with our available resources. Remember. Generosity is a sign of a Dynamic Catholic.
