17TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Time and again, Jesus made clear that his mission on earth was to do his Father’s will. In his public ministry, he expressed the Father’s love in various ways – he healed the sick, fed the hungry, and even raised people from the dead. He showed great affinity for the lowly and the outcast; he fought injustice with compassion and strength. He was not sent to be a political leader; he was the promised Messiah who came to save us from our sins.

The miracle in today’s Gospel is well known. [Mark and Matthew have two accounts of a multiplication of loaves and fishes; John and Luke have one.] Large crowds were following Jesus because he had been curing the sick. Jesus saw that they were hungry. After asking his disciples where they could buy enough food for them to eat, Andrew told him about a boy who had five barley loaves and two fish. Jesus took the food, gave thanks, and distributed it. Amazingly, Jesus fed about five thousand men (and uncounted women and children).

After satisfying the human needs of his hungry followers, Jesus instructs his disciples to gather the fragments left over, so that nothing will be wasted, and they collect twelve wicker baskets full. As with Elisha in today’s Old Testament reading, there was some left over. Jesus’ miracle prefigured the superabundance of the Eucharist (CCC 1335). For from the shores of the Sea of Galilee, Jesus would travel to Jerusalem, and there, he would institute the Eucharist the night before he died – a perpetual memorial of his sacrifice.

Two thousand years later, we, too, gather to listen to Jesus and to implore him with our needs. We, too, watch as the priest takes the bread, gives thanks, and distributes it to us – another unworthy and hungry crowd. We feast at the Lord’s table. We encounter Jesus – the bread of life – under simple forms of bread and wine.

We are thus nourished by Word and sacrament. He freely gives us all we need. And yet, there is some left over – more grace, more gifts, more wisdom. What do we do with the leftovers? Perhaps the answer lies in today’s second reading. Saint Paul tells the Ephesians to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace. This is a job description for Christians! We have the obligation to use the gift of the Eucharist in the service of others. We must join with other Christians, with people of all faiths or no faith, to make the world better, to strive for unity and peace. Jesus knew his mission – to share the Father’s love. That’s our mission, too.
