He Was Moved with Pity for Us

Today’s Gospel (Matthew 15:29-37) states how much Jesus felt sorry for us. Jesus was “moved with pity for” us. Granted we were not all there, we weren’t even born yet! Although, our ancestors and brothers and sisters in faith (in the early formation of our faith) were there and that means we were there. Somehow, for some reason, Jesus realized that He could not just send us away without giving them something to eat. He gave them both physical food (fish and loaves of bread) and spiritual food (teachings and parables). He also cured many who were ill there.

I realized that I too try to give not just physical food to others (both while at work in the form of cookies, ice cream, soft drinks, etc. and at home in the form of helping serve dinner or dessert to Mom or Steven), but also other forms of food (while at work I share my sense of humor and lend an ear on occasion to co-workers and customers; at home I share my companionship and again my sense of humor and lend an ear). I’m guessing we all could do a bit better and move with pity for others to listen to them more, give more attention to physical and emotional (or spiritual) hungers of others. I hopeful we can do this and if we do, who knows maybe Christmas will be a bit more joyful or mean something more than it did in the past.

Well, that’s all for tonight.

God bless!
