My heart is moved with pity for the crowd

“My heart is moved with pity 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 collapse on the way, and some of them have come a great distance.” (MK 8: 2-3) 

This is Our Lord and His love. He takes care of us in all our dimensions—for our souls and for our bodies, for our relationship with Our Father and with our relatives, where we live and no matter how far apart are our homes. He doesn’t want to see us praying for hours and leaving our spouses alone at home, being amazing apostles for others but having no time for our own children. If we really want to make Our Lord happy with us, we can show Him how much we respect our vocation, a vocation we have received from Him; we can show Him how gentle we are with our relatives and how much we are concerned to have good quality time with our spouses daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.

“One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.” (Gospel Acclamation)
