17th Sunday of Ordinary Time

Today we read of Jesus feeding 5,000 people with just five barley loaves and two fish.

Miraculous? Yes, but nothing like as miraculous as the priest turning bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ!

O Food of men wayfaring,
the bread of angels sharing,
O Manna from on high!
We hunger; Lord, supply us,
nor thy delights deny us,
whose hearts to thee draw nigh.

O stream of love past telling,
O purest fountain, welling
from out the Saviour's side!
We faint with thirst; revive us,
of thine abundance give us,
and all we need provide.

O Jesus, by thee bidden,
we here adore thee, hidden
'neath forms of bread and wine.
Grant when the veil is riven,
we may behold, in heaven,
thy countenance divine.

Happy Sunday!

The Eucharist is the life blood of my faith. I love Eucharistic Adoration too.
