1 Kings 19:4-8
Psalm 34:2-9
Ephesians 4:30-5:2
John 6:41-51 Sometimes we feel like Elijah in today’s First Reading. We want to lie down and die, keenly aware of our failures—that we seem to be getting no better at doing what God wants of us. We can be tempted to despair, as the prophet was on his forty-day journey in the desert. We can be tempted to “murmur” against God, as the Israelites did during their forty years in the desert (see Exodus 16:27,

Bread Left Over: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary TimeDownload Audio File The Feeding of the Multitude, Limbourg Brothers, 1411-1416 Readings:
2 Kings 4:42–44
Psalm 145:10-1115–18
Ephesians 4:1–6
John 6:1–15 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 m…

Jeremiah 23:1–16
Psalms 23:1–6
Ephesians 2:13–18
Mark 6:30–34 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 misled 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…

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 (see

Son of Mary: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary TimeDownload Audio File Readings: Ezekiel 2:2-5
Psalm 123:1-4
2 Corinthians 12:7-10
Mark 6:1-6

But He seems to meet His match in His hometown of Nazareth. Today's Gospel is blunt: “He was not able to perform any mighty deed there.” Why not? Because of the people's lack of faith. They acknowledged the wisdom of His words, the power of His works. But they refused to recognize Him as a prophet come among them, a m…
