Readings for the Week
August 2 - 9, 2020
Readings for Sunday, August 2:

Is 55:1-3:
  Sharing in the happiness of the kingdom is Godís free gift to all who thirst for God.

Rom 8:35, 37-39:  We should have a firm hope of sharing in the messianic banquet, the happiness promised
to us by our God.  Nothing can separate us from the love of God that comes to us in Christ Jesus.

Mt 14:13-21:  The event of this passage (feeding the people) is a messianic sign that will find its fulfillment in
the true messianic banquet, the Eucharist, which contains the promise of everlasting life in Godís kingdom.

Todayís Message:  Jesus has pity on the crowd and miraculously feeds them.  In His compassion, the Lord
answers all our needs, thus renewing His covenant of love with us. Nothing can ever separate us from the love of Christ.
