The Multiplication of the Loaves
The theme of
the sixth chapter of John’s gospel is centered on Jesus as the Bread of Life.
It begins with the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves. This miracle
has Eucharistic overtones and is the only miracle recounted in all four of the
Prayer: I do not ever have to feel hungry if only I avail myself of your word
and your presence. I do have to remember and serve those who are hungry
physically and spiritually.
