18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

31 July 2011

Today’s Readings: Is 55:1-3/Rom 8:35, 37-39/Mt 14:13-21

The Gospel has shown us how some of our persistent problems in the world, like hunger and poverty for example, could be addressed. We see how God in Christ can do great things, even with the little we have, if we are generous in giving. By giving the little they had to Jesus, the disciples started the miracle of changing selfishness to generosity and concern.

We have too many problems in our society today and Jesus is inviting us to do our part in addressing them by becoming aware of and sensitive to the needs of others and by giving ourselves and sharing whatever we have. We have seen the wonderful result of trust in Jesus and the willingness to give. Everyone has something to offer whether great or small and God uses it to give life to others. In God’s hands, even the humblest or smallest gift can relieve the hunger and thirst of so many people.

Both organizations were founded by the Dutch missionary, Fr Cornelio Lagerwey, MSC, in collaboration with his mission partner Genaro V. Ong.
