"Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.’ Mark 10, 27
How many rich young men and adults are running around in the world ! Perhaps you yourself are a rich young man as well ?! I believe that Jesus could solve all the world’s squalor , problems, but He would like if on our faces as well His kindhearted , beautiful features would also shine ! This is why without exception  is He encouraging all of us to :go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.!” Come my child , take hold of my hand and I’ll will guide you step by step , so that you do good , you be good , you become a blessing for your brethren !! Come to Africa, Asia , but even at home in Europe dare to live in fraternal love , become the symbol of love  in the life of your brothers , because this is the only way to become united with Me !!
With love from the Congo .

The Word of God
As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him, 'Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?' Jesus said to him, 'Why do you call me good? No one is good but God alone. You know the commandments: "You shall not murder; You shall not commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shall not bear false witness; You shall not defraud; Honour your father and mother."' He said to him, 'Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth.' Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, 'You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.' When he heard this, he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions.
Then Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, 'How hard it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God!' And the disciples were perplexed at these words. But Jesus said to them again, 'Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.' They were greatly astounded and said to one another, 'Then who can be saved?' Jesus looked at them and said, 'For mortals it is impossible, but not for God; for God all things are possible.'

Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel 3 March 2019 Eight Sunday in Ordinary Time 
It is easy to notice the splinter in others’ eyes , but very difficult to discover the plank in our own eye !
Read more: 3 March 2019 Eight Sunday in Ordinary Time We are in the Congo, this morning starting at 6.30 am ,  Dr Richard Hardy a  missionary monk took us to the local Franciscan Father , into a huge church , in  Mbuyi Maji , a big town of two million people ! This is how early the Sunday holy mass starts here, so that in the morning dew , under cooler conditions the people gather for the holy mass and pray ! In this large city of two million , the same as in other parts of the Congo with 70 million people in most parts there is no electricity , drinking water , government organised health cover , provision of medical services , road systems , removal of garbage ….People gathered in the breaking dawn only by the light of two flickering candles ! Walking through the town we were dismayed to see this huge poverty , that afflicts  people right in the vicinity of one of the world’s biggest diamond mines ! Everybody is poor here , even the police are obviously hungry begging for food and still in the early hours of the morning , at sunrise , in the beautiful beautiful glittering light everybody , dressed neatly comes to the holy mass. The ceremony lasted close on three hours, the cantor , the choir wit drum ,zither were praising the Lord of Life and together with the altar servers , including the main celebrant of the mass almost continuously was dancing , singing ! The young local Franciscan father was giving his sermon with great dynamism , happily inter native tongue , from which we could not understand much , but we were amazed the way the very many young people , adults and children trustingly were shouting , expressing loudly their likes upon hearing a good thought, a punch line ! Everybody came forth at the time of taking up the collection , and after offering of the donations everybody received a personal blessing ! With Father Szabolcs we personally blessed every single member of the congregation filling the huge church ! It was touching to see , the way the young people, children and adults one by one came forth in a long ,packed queue and bowed their heads in front of the priests of God . Here the babies in the women’s arms are almost universal,  the child is part of the local folk costumes , just like high spirits , gaiety , the dance and the song ! 
Splinter and plank ?! In Europe many, many things have been put in place , it works more or less , but the zest for life , gaiety, but  the many , many  laughing , smiling children are missing from the young mother’s arms and not only from our churches , but form our families, society the children are missing also ! We are not giving thanks in the morning, that we managed to survive the night, because it is almost given that we live in peace , security , but here you yourself are responsible for safeguarding  the public order for yourself, your family ! 
We made huge sacrifices for material wealth, in the schools, at the workplace it is not easy to live up to expectations of everybody in everything , and at times like this , the gaiety , high spirits wilt in our lives and it is easier to live up to  the expectations unfortunately without a family, children! Seeing my singing, dancing fellow men at the  holy mass at dawn I feel that to give up the future, to to deny, refuse the holy task of starting a family , acceptance of children is the greatest plank, compared to this plank here in Congo everything is just a fleeting small splinter !
With love ,

The Word of God
Jesus told a parable to his disciples: ‘Can one blind man guide another? Surely both will fall into a pit? The disciple is not superior to his teacher; the fully trained disciple will always be like his teacher. Why do you observe the splinter in your brother’s eye and never notice the plank in your own? How can you say to your brother, “Brother, let me take out the splinter that is in your eye,” when you cannot see the plank in your own? Hypocrite! Take the plank out of your own eye first, and then you will see clearly enough to take out the splinter that is in your brother’s eye.
‘There is no sound tree that produces rotten fruit, nor again a rotten tree that produces sound fruit. For every tree can be told by its own fruit: people do not pick figs from thorns, nor gather grapes from brambles. A good man draws what is good from the store of goodness in his heart; a bad man draws what is bad from the store of badness. For a man’s words flow out of what fills his heart.’

"what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10,11
This saying of Jesus we always apply to marriage, family ! Here in a foreign land , in a big city of 12 million inhabitants, Kinshasa, where  I met lots of lovely children , kind people , I definitely sense that God planted the love of the homeland as well, deeply within  me, within us ! ! The question is , what can we do to make this bond strong enough that in such a drifting world it will keep us in our homeland ? It seems as though the people here love their homeland very much, are proud of their heritage , but according to a local tour guide, no such person lives in this big city who if they could, would not happily go to Europe! 
There are lots of problems in the families as well , but we always say that it is God who stored up your heart for the love towards your wife, your husband , and He also wants you that solving the problems you live together happily ever after . Endure in love by  becoming refined, forming each other in love , because for him and she for you are the gift of God, his/ her life-belt . With , beside him/her you can discover your faults, your boundaries and together , trusting in each other , continuing a dialogue you unfold , materially, humanity , but spiritually as well ! By moulding, forming  you also become “formed” , by benefiting your companion , you also make yourself nicer at the same time , with the same work, patience !
One thing is  for certain , just like in many parts of the big, wide world here in the Congo as well there are lots problems waiting to be solved ! Today we went to a school , where 6-700 children are studying, but there is no electricity and in the classrooms apart from the desks there is only one big blackboard painted on the wall ! To face up to the realistic problems , perhaps to ask for help and solve those , or else to leave everything behind and go into a foreign land ? The way I see this, that more and more in many places this is the big question !?
I believe that Jesus Christ wants us to become attached more and more to our family, but to our homeland as well ! It is quite certain that He does not want our world to perish in the hell of a newer migration! That is why I am convinced that for us priests , just the same as for the prosperity, success of the families we have to do everything , to help the young people , the nations that staying in their own homeland they can create a life fit for a human being ! 
Do not part ! Do not leave your homeland ! Reading today’s gospel here in the Congo these two sentences are resounding in my heart , that I share lovingly with you ! 
Swept abroad ,your lesser brother

The Word of God
He left that place and went to the region of Judea and beyond the Jordan. And crowds again gathered around him; and, as was his custom, he again taught them.
Some Pharisees came, and to test him they asked, ‘Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife?’ He answered them, ‘What did Moses command you?’ They said, ‘Moses allowed a man to write a certificate of dismissal and to divorce her.’ But Jesus said to them, ‘Because of your hardness of heart he wrote this commandment for you. But from the beginning of creation, “God made them male and female.” “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.’
Then in the house the disciples asked him again about this matter. He said to them, ‘Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her; and if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.’

With a statue of the Christ Child,I am sitting here at the airport in Paris !! Whilst waiting for our flight to Kinshasa I read it joyfully Jesus Christ’s  everlasting beautiful request in today’s gospel !! “ be at peace with one another.”
Around me very “colourful “ people are waiting and I am trying consciously keep the blessed  peace in my heart alive like  the flame on a candle. !! I am looking at the faces and try to say a prayer silently for every single person , and a blessing !! For them I am asking from God the blessed peace , the peace , the lack of that peace because of it not only the people of Africa but the whole of humanity has suffered so much !
Together with Saint Francis I am asking with love and prayer my creator God!

Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. 
Where there is hatred, let me sow love; 
Where there is injury, pardon; 
Where there is doubt, faith; 
Where there is despair, hope; 
Where there is darkness, light; 
Where there is sadness, joy. 
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek 
To be consoled as to console, 
To be understood as to understand, 
To be loved as to love; 
For it is in giving that we receive; 
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned; 
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

The Word of God
Jesus said to his disciples, ‘If anyone gives you a cup of water to drink just because you belong to Christ, then I tell you solemnly, he will most certainly not lose his reward. ‘But anyone who is an obstacle to bring down one of these little ones who have faith, would be better thrown into the sea with a great millstone round his neck. And if your hand should cause you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life crippled, than to have two hands and go to hell, into the fire that cannot be put out. And if your foot should cause you to sin, cut it off; it is better for you to enter into life lame, than to have two feet and be thrown into hell. And if your eye should cause you to sin, tear it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell where their worm does not die nor their fire go out. For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is a good thing, but if salt has become insipid, how can you season it again? Have salt in yourselves and be at peace with one another.’

"Whoever is not against us is for us.” Mark 9, 38
Very often we can manage to bring out the wickedness from each other , with tiresome , hard work we create for ourselves a hated enemy . Lets just think about this, if we are in danger , if we are being attacked , then we start to defend ourselves , very often we also become hostile as well. But if we are being ordered about ,or if we feel that we are being forced to do something, if they try to fill us full ,-this can even arise even from love as well-then we barricade ourselves , often we can turn to being offensive . Very often because of petty things, well-meaning , harmless people can also become the fierce enemies of each other , and willingly or unwillingly we can cause serious suffering , grief.  
The shortest distance between two people is the straight talk, the honest dialogue . Lets observe that the great Master Jesus how easily can address people, gets to know them, and with just a few word within a few minutes  He turns them into being His friends:
"Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” After Good Friday “ Peter do you love me ? or “Saul, Saul why are you persecuting me ! “  Lets reflect at some length about these meetings ! Let us gaze in wonderment that how every smile of Jesus , word makes a friend.
Lets dare to step on the road travelled by our Master , that leads to the land of companions, good friends ! 
May God grant us , that with our sweaty, hard labour we do not make enemies  from the people living around us , but we gain  real good friends for ourselves for eternal life with happy, cheerful laughter .
With love ,

Christianity is the religion of joy ! Jesus is not saying that whoever wants to follow me to wipe out any desire from oneself of ambition , thirsting after a sense of achievement and dare to be insignificant, weak and fallible . But bravely He says , that it is good if you want to be great, be the greatest in your family , in society! He even tells you how you can become great, the greatest :whoever wants to become the greatest should be the servant of all.If you take upon your shoulder the worries , problems , difficulties of your companions and you try to solve those with the love of a lesser brother , humbly, if you can be at the service of your fellow human beings with a pure heart , then for him you’ll be irreplaceable , important and this way you’ll be precious in the eyes of God as well really , really great in other words you’ll become a saint . The one who unselfishly takes upon his shoulders the burdens, worries and problems   of his local parish, his people ,even more so of mankind and enclosing them in his heart looks for answers for their questions , even though  as a burning candle for the community is consumed , yet his life for many becomes a blessing . There are so many difficulties , problems needing solutions in people’s lives . According to the christlike interpretation for a person “aiming high”  these problems are the real gifts , noble trophies . Of course it is not easy to swim to a person drowning in the water and saving their lives by pulling them ashore . A desperate man is kicking and can easily cause us pain, and moreover the danger exists that he can pull you down into the deep , but in the end no-one has a greater love than the one who gives his life for his own ! 
Seeing a child in trouble we can shrug our shoulders , we can be judgemental over the parents, society , we can blame the Church , the mayor, the different state organisations , but by doing all this the child still won’t be fed . The time is passing, the fabric of society is fraying . We have to dress into new clothing our big family slowly reaching eight billion. Our Creator God quite certainly does not want us to join the ranks of the complaining , the ones even feeling sorry for the fraying, old clothes , but He wants us that in the light of His gospel out of love to cut out, sew new clothes , to formulate very humbly , with the example of our live’s  toilsome work the  rules of new type of coexistence . Our duty is not waiting for the end of the world , but the building of the kingdom of God. We should not be talking to each other in the voice of downhearted  hopelessness but with the voice of good brethren looking for a way out, giving hope , courage. Be an answer to the questions , be a healing balm for the wounds , be bread for the hungry , fresh water for the thirsty and then you’ll become great, the greatest and not only for your brothers in trouble, struggling with problems but in the eyes of our heavenly Father as well !

They went on from there and passed through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, "The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again." But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him. Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, "What were you arguing about on the way?" But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest. He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, "Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all." Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, "Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me."

I like very much following the Master whilst reading the gospel. Today’s passage of the holy scriptures places Christ in front of us as He is coming down from Mount Tabor . There is a big argument , noise Jesus asks from the apostles :" ‘What are you arguing about with them?’” Mark 9, 14.
Then when He finds out that His disciples could not, dared not , neither wanted to help a child in trouble then He chides the ones standing around Him: 17 “You unbelieving and perverse generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy here to me.”Matthew 17, 17- then nicely , calmly solves the problem . Jesus is not saying to the father that :yes my disciples are too insignificant they have not learned this yet, please do not be angry with them ! But neither is He saying to the apostles , that it does not matter, no problems,  you just sit back in awe ! But says angrily : How much longer should I stay with you, when will you finally learn to be good to each other, help with faith the ones in trouble ? It seems that Jesus expects that the apostles following in His footsteps for years , can solve the father’s problem without Him as well . Jesus speaks clearly, He does not want us to be shrugging our shoulders indifferently and just say , we don’t know how to go about it , we are too small for this , but He wants that we act in His name to produce fruit , lasting fruit .
It is worthwhile  think about it where our boundaries , limits are ? I wonder that “how big am I “ on my own in my own eyes , and by bravely taking hold of the blessed  hand of God then how “big do I become “? According to our school children 2-3 km is a lot, yet with the same children if we set out on a pilgrimage , we easily do 20 kms singing, praying . To lear a poem 2-3 paragraphs long and learning some mathematical or physics formulae at school, according to the children is very difficult , but those children get happily ready for the performance of a play lasting 2 hours.Our students last Saturday in Budapest at a Teacher’s Expo in front of 2000 teachers presented a gala performance , at the end of which the teachers were clapping  standing up . I ask you in reality “how big are we “ ? How far are we willing to go ?How long should Jesus put up with our going around in circles , our writhing like a lame duck ? Why do we condemn ourselves looking at it from a mental, physical, spiritual aspect to become puny dwarfs ? Why don’t we dare to spread our wings and get going with our faith devoted in God , to make our most beautiful dreams come true ? 
Upon the encouragement of our Lord Jesus Christ following the example of Saint Peter with prayer and love row out into the deep , cast the net , because it is quite certain that the Father of mercy is going to fill it my tossing boat with His grace and all that I have need for.

When they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and some scribes arguing with them. When the whole crowd saw him, they were immediately overcome with awe, and they ran forward to greet him. He asked them, ‘What are you arguing about with them?’ Someone from the crowd answered him, ‘Teacher, I brought you my son; he has a spirit that makes him unable to speak; and whenever it seizes him, it dashes him down; and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid; and I asked your disciples to cast it out, but they could not do so.’ He answered them, ‘You faithless generation, how much longer must I be among you? How much longer must I put up with you? Bring him to me.’ And they brought the boy to him. When the spirit saw him, immediately it threw the boy into convulsions, and he fell on the ground and rolled about, foaming at the mouth. Jesus asked the father, ‘How long has this been happening to him?’ And he said, ‘From childhood. It has often cast him into the fire and into the water, to destroy him; but if you are able to do anything, have pity on us and help us.’ Jesus said to him, ‘If you are able!—All things can be done for the one who believes.’ Immediately the father of the child cried out, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!’ When Jesus saw that a crowd came running together, he rebuked the unclean spirit, saying to it, ‘You spirit that keep this boy from speaking and hearing, I command you, come out of him, and never enter him again!’ After crying out and convulsing him terribly, it came out, and the boy was like a corpse, so that most of them said, ‘He is dead.’ But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him up, and he was able to stand. When he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, ‘Why could we not cast it out?’ He said to them, ‘This kind can come out only through prayer.

Our Lord Jesus Christ not only involves His disciples in the work but also assigns the tasks between them ! Peter: "I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”Matthew 16,13
The disciples “grow up “ , become mature adults ,  Christians with responsibilities  by the fact that Jesus not only trusts in them , but also entrusts them with the beautiful task of the further creation of the world ! The duty of the apostles and their disciples is, to teach all people, every nation  till the end of times, the commandment of love ! Yes God, entrusts Saint Peter and his companions the building  of the kingdom of love ! He has confidence in these people , whom He got to know 2-3 years prior  , and the fruit of His trust  is the Church that has been in existence for two thousand years , the many-many wonderful saints , wise teachers , close on two milliard baptised Christians who live in the world of our times , not even mentioning the countless churches, monasteries, wonderful shrines that cover the whole world ! The great , beautiful miracle of  our Church's trust in God’s creations , in the people , in itself is enough to force us on our knees , to motivate us to become followers  of Christ !
Lets share the tasks ! I was convinced many a  times just how many wonderful young people live in the homes of the Saint Francis Foundation! Now I am asking them that they organise themselves the Youth Meeting of Székelyhíd  between 28-30 June 2019 !  We’ll support them all the way , but the planning, organisation , execution of the event is the task of the young people growing up in our homes ! 
Lets dare to involve people in our work , lets dare to share our tasks , lets dare to pass on our functions to the young people growing up around us !

And they said, "Some say John the Baptist, but others Elijah, and still others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God." And Jesus answered him, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not prevail against it.

Now the disciples had forgotten to bring any bread; and they had only one loaf with them in the boat. And he cautioned them, saying, "Watch out - beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and the yeast of Herod." They said to one another, "It is because we have no bread." And becoming aware of it, Jesus said to them, "Why are you talking about having no bread? Do you still not perceive or understand?" Are your hearts hardened? Do you have eyes, and fail to see? Do you have ears, and fail to hear? And do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you collect?' They said to him, 'Twelve.' 'And the seven for the four thousand, how many baskets full of broken pieces did you collect?' And they said to him, 'Seven.' Then he said to them, 'Do you not yet understand?'

“Be glad ….and rejoice!"
A Christian by accepting the  burdens of life and all the difficulties associated with the duties of his standing in society day after day patiently taking them on , then they have every reason to live happily and trusting, that his life despite all problems, worries will culminate in rejoicing ! A Christian is not joyous because things are going well , or because the money is accumulating nicely in the bank , but because despite all his weaknesses he still knows that God considers him as one of His own and loves him !! A God-fearing man can be happy even in the lions’ den , because Jesus does not attach the conditions of our happiness to extraordinary performances , or achievements delighting the eyes, but to our personal relation with Him !! The results of our work in reality are the gifts of God ! We sow , we fall into the ground just like the good seed, or the gentle spring rain , but it is our Creator who gives the produce, the fruit, , when His Holy Majesty sees it fit !!
It maybe that you are poor, perhaps you hunger , cry, your good intentions are misinterpreted  and that say all sorts of vile things about you, but if you walk on the path of love , you’ll be happy .True happiness cannot be given by wealth, richest, success, condescension  , the source of happiness is not here but in the arms of your creator God ! A good Christian desires to be there !!

Then he looked up at his disciples and said:
‘Blessed are you who are poor,
   for yours is the kingdom of God.
‘Blessed are you who are hungry now,
   for you will be filled.
‘Blessed are you who weep now,
   for you will laugh.
‘Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice on that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets.
‘But woe to you who are rich,
   for you have received your consolation.
‘Woe to you who are full now,
   for you will be hungry.
‘Woe to you who are laughing now,
   for you will mourn and weep.

27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” 29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. Book of Genesis 1,27-29 
How nicely did God work out everything , how well we could live together in brotherly love and then we have to read such news items, so that we can see it with our own eyes :”Approximately 20% of the world’s population under the age seventeen , that is more than 380 million children and young people are growing up in extremely poor conditions .”according to the MTI .
God did not create man for poverty, privations ! Poverty , hunger , misery exist not because God did not provide for His children , but because we take away God’s gifts from each other! In our world today smart computers  keep track of everything . The states know exactly how much food gets to each shop, every shelf , they know how much they are worth , how much is needed , how many are left after their expiry date ! Unfortunately all that is left has to be disposed off, they even keep a record of the cost of how much they pay for the removal of the produce , that is delivered first to the shops and when they have to be taken away to be disposed off !   Economists worked out the cost of these wasted items of food and added it up. In developed countries the cost of the produce needed , delivered to the shops and being removed from there to be  legally thrown out  , if this amount would be the GDP of a country , then that country would be the world’s fifth richest country in the world .
Jesus does not feed people Himself, He just blesses and multiplies in Cana as well but according to today’s gospel people’s work and efforts ! Jesus blessed two thousand years ago people’s goodness the seven loaves of bread and fish , I also believe that even today he blesses the goodness, helpful intentions of those people bending down to their needy brethren ! God is not tight-fisted , we are greedy , heartless, disorganised .
There where we are lets pay attention to each other and lets do everything so that the coming generations can live their lives in this world in abundance , glorifying God’d goodness !
With love,

The Word of God
In those days when there was again a great crowd without anything to eat, he called his disciples and said to them, "I have compassion for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. If I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way - and some of them have come from a great distance." His disciples replied, "How can one feed these people with bread here in the desert?" He asked them, "How many loaves do you have?" They said, "Seven." Then he ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground; and he took the seven loaves, and after giving thanks he broke them and gave them to his disciples to distribute; and they distributed them to the crowd. They had also a few small fish; and after blessing them, he ordered that these too should be distributed. They ate and were filled; and they took up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full. Now there were about four thousand people.
