Give them food!
Readings: 2 Kings 4, 42-44; Ps 145, 10.11.15.16.17-18; Eph 4,1-6; Jn 6, 1-15
Today, the 25th July 2021 the Holy Father Pope Francis invites us to celebrate the first World Day of prayer for for Grandparents and the Elderly. The word of God for us on the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time fits exactly in a time when many are looking for food. The current lockdown due to the Covid-19 wave has driven many vulnerable people into deplorable food scarsity. Just as it was in the time of Elisha and in Jesus’ time, the invitation is: „Give the people food so that nobody may go hungry!“ This is only possible is we all renounce our selfishness and be ready to share.
