Acts 5:34-42; Psalm 26; John 6:1-15
Today’s first reading presents us with the conclusion of Peter’s trial and the Gamaliel’s intervention. For him, undertaking that is of God will never fail. The Apostles’ undertaking did not fail. Its name is Catholic Church. Its stability is a marvel of all her enemies over the years. In the gospel we are presented with another undertaking – Jesus and the large crowd. Thus, the miracle of five loaves and two fish. If our undertaking is of God, there are so many possibilities: we shall not fail, our faith will reign and not fail, and our plans will be established.
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
