Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel Monday 5th August 2019
Jesus is such a true Man ! The news of death of His friend John the Baptist stuns Him ! He goes to a lonely place alone, to pray….the people follow Him maimed sick and the Master mourning His friend puts aside His problems, troubles , heals and consoles , teaches ! Then lovingly , kind-heartedly gives food to the hungry people . He gives with an overabundant measure to everyone….there is even some left over !
What a beautiful face Jesus has ! ! Lets follow our Redeeming Master !! With love ,

The Word of God
Now when Jesus heard of the death of John the Baptist, he withdrew from there in a boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves." Jesus said to them, "They need not go away; you give them something to eat." They replied, "We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish." And he said, "Bring them here to me." Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
