Sunday, June 19, 2022 – The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ
Please read the weekly Gospel and review the questions before attending Mass on the weekend. After attending Mass, please engage your family in a discussion and answer three of the following questions:
What was the message of this Gospel Reading?
What was the message of the homily about this Gospel?
How does this pertain to my life and how can I live this message?
What stood out to you?
What did you learn?
What is something new that you heard?
Jesus spoke to the crowds about the kingdom of God,
and he healed those who needed to be cured.
As the day was drawing to a close,
the Twelve approached him and said,
“Dismiss the crowd
so that they can go to the surrounding villages and farms
and find lodging and provisions;
for we are in a deserted place here.”
He said to them, “Give them some food yourselves.”
They replied, “Five loaves and two fish are all we have,
unless we ourselves go and buy food for all these people.”
Now the men there numbered about five thousand.
Then he said to his disciples,
“Have them sit down in groups of about fifty.”
They did so and made them all sit down.
Then taking the five loaves and the two fish,
and looking up to heaven,
he said the blessing over them, broke them,
and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd.
They all ate and were satisfied.
And when the leftover fragments were picked up,
they filled twelve wicker baskets.
