Geeky Catholic Advent: Wednesday of the First Week of Advent 2018

Gospel Reading: Matthew 15:29-37

Highlight: "[Jesus] took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds. They all ate and were satisfied."

Reflection: Where do we turn for satisfaction? Money? Technology? The approval of our friends? None of those things are lasting. The fact that Jesus was able to multiply the loaves and the fish shows us that his power to satisfy us is greater than anything we can find in this life. Only in Him will we be satisfied. This doesn't mean we should reject all earthly things, but we have to make sure they aren't coming between us and God.

Geeky Quote: "Stick with me, and you'll never go hungry again!" - Scar, The Lion King [NOTE: In this example Scar represents earthly things, and is in no way a Christ figure!]

Prayer: Jesus, only you can satisfy me. Remove from my soul all unhealthy attachments to earthly things, and prepare me to enter into full communion with you in heaven. Amen.
