“Come, Receive Grain and Eat”:

The Feeding of the Five Thousand, the Eucharist, and the Hope of Israel
(18th Sunday in Ordinary Time)

Posted by Dr. Michael Barber on 07.31.14

This Sunday the readings highlight the way the Kingdom of God is present sacramentally. Specifically, hopes for the restoration of Israel are linked to a miracle of Jesus, the feeding of the five thousand, which is clearly understood eucharistically.

I’ll be speaking on this topic this weekend at the Catholic Family Conference in Wichita, Kansas. Hope to see some of you there!

The Seventh Summer by Scott Hahn

Posted by Dr. Scott Hahn on 07.29.14

In the Bible the seventh instance of anything is significant. Seven is the number signifying God’s covenant, and so it suggests a certain completion and perfection.

As we approached our seventh annual Letter and Spirit Summer Institute, it would have been natural to wonder whether our Institute has now become an institution.

Every year we approach it with high expectations, based on past successes,...  [Continue Reading]

Psalm 119:57,72,76-77,127-130
Romans 8:28-30  
Matthew 13:44-52

What is your new life in Christ worth to you?

Do you love His words more than gold and silver, as we sing in today’s Psalm? Would you, like the characters in the Gospel today, sell all that you have in order to possess the kingdom He promises to us? If God were to grant any wish, would you follow Solomon’s example...  [Continue Reading]

Wisdom 12:13,16-19  
Psalm 86:5-6, 9-10, 15-16

Romans 8:26-27  
Matthew 13:24-43

God is always teaching His people, we hear in today’s First Reading.

And what does He want us to know? That He has care for all of us, that though He is a God of justice, even those who defy and disbelieve Him may hope for His mercy if they turn to Him in repentance.

This divine teaching continues in the...  [Continue Reading]

The Word’s Return: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted by Nate Roberts on 07.11.14

Readings:
Isaiah 55:10-11  
Psalm 65:10-14

Romans 8:18-23  
Matthew 13:1-23

Today’s readings, like last week’s, ask us to meditate on Israel’s response to God’s Word—and our own. Why do some hear the word of the kingdom, yet fail to accept it as a call to conversion and faith in Jesus? That question underlies today’s Gospel, especially.
