Today's liturgy brings together several strands of Old Testament expectation to reveal Jesus as Israel's promised Messiah and king, the Lord who comes to feed His people. Notice the parallels between today's Gospel and First Reading. Both Elisha and Jesus face a crowd of hungry people with only a few "barley" loaves. We hear similar words about how impossible it will be to feed the crowd with so little. And in both the miraculous multiplication of bread satisfies the hungry and leaves food left over. The Elisha story looks back to Moses, the prophet who fed God's people in the wilderness (see Exodus 16). Moses prophesied that God would send a prophet like him (see…

As the Twelve return from their first missionary journey in today's Gospel, our readings continue to reflect on the authority and mission of the Church. Jeremiah says in the First Reading that Israel's leaders, through godlessness and fanciful teachings, had mislead and scattered God's people. He promises God will send a shepherd, a king and son of David, to gather the lost sheep and appoint for them new shepherds (see Ezekiel 34:23). The crowd gathering on the green grass (see Mark 6:39) in today's Gospel is the start of the remnant that Jeremiah promised would be brought back to the mead…

Pleased to share Dr. Scott Hahn's Sunday reflection with you all!
The Church’s Mission: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time July 06, 2015 Download Audio File Readings: Amos 7:12-15 Psalms 85:9-14 Ephesians 1:3-14 Mark 6:7-13
In commissioning the apostles in today's Gospel, Jesus gives them, and us, a preview of His Church's mission after the resurrection. His instructions to the Twelve echo those of God to the twelve tribes of Israel on the eve of their exodus from Egypt. The Israelites likewise were sent out with no bread and only one set of clothes, wearing sandals and carrying a staff (seeExodus 12:11Deuteronomy 8:2-4). Like the Israelites, the apostles are to rely solely on the providence of God and His grace. Perhaps, also, Mark wants us to see the apostles' mission, the mission of the Church, as that of leading a new exodus - delivering peoples from their…
