Sharing the Word for February 12, 2022

Saturday of the Fifth Week in Ordinary Time

February 12, 2022
Daily Reading from the USCCB: Mark 8:1-10

In today’s reading we see Jesus feeding the crowds–some 4000 people. This action was a repetition of God’s feeding his people with manna in the desert. It was also a sign of the Eucharist that was still to come, and of the final banquet in the kingdom of heaven. It’s filled with meaning.

Basically however this event was an action of Jesus caring for his people. In the midst of the wilderness he provides them with more abundant nourishment than they can handle.

The Lord looks after us, too. We don’t always grasp the full meaning of what he does for us, but we know that his gifts are abundant. And we know that we owe him our thanks.
