Tuesday after Epiphany
By REV. FR. SAMUEL FREDERICK

1 Jn 4:7-10, Mk 6:34-44. To better understand the words of John in the first reading, it may be important to look at the example displayed by Jesus in today's Gospel. Jesus was moved with compassion for the crowd, that was like sheep without A shepherd. He first fed them spiritually and then proceeded to offer them bread and fish; they all ate and were satisfied. We are also called to make the joy and hope, sorrows and anguish of others ours. We will become better witnesses of Christ when we learn to see and appraise events through the eyes of Christ who out of compassion for us, offered His life to redeem us.

When we tove, five loaves and two fish can feed five thousand men. Today, we are challenged to love despite the challenges we may encounter in loving: "Let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves, is born of God and knows God". We are invited to make commitment to love and appreciate the love of others. God is calling upon us to turn towards Him, filled with love, to receive the fullness of His grace and love, by uniting ourselves to Him, in perfect love of others without reservation. This is the moment to renew our commitment to live our lives with faith and love.

May the Almighty God, our loving Lord and Creator, continue to love us and help us to love selflessly! Amen!! Good morning and have a wonderful day!!!
