Keys are part of our lives.  Here are three ways in particular:

  • Power - to do stuff
  • Authority - the right to do stuff in formal & informal ways
  • Responsibility - to be accountable for the stuff we do

How will we use the keys we have been given?  How will we offer our lives to use what we have been given in good and prudent ways.

Do you remember a time when you were a stranger, visitor, or guest?  Were you welcomed?  Who welcomed you?  How did they make you feel, and how did they help you fit in?

Welcoming others is a central part of hospitality.  When we recognize that we are brothers and sisters in the Lord, how do we interact with one another?  God reaches out to all people, inviting them to draw near.  May the Lord help us to treat one another with the love and enthusiasm of Christ!

Four scenes are touched in this homily:

1) Jesus feeding the 5000

2) Jesus alone in prayer

3) Jesus approaching the boat during a storm

4) Jesus saving Peter

We can enter into each of these scenes and recognize God at work in our lives in moments of gratitude, stillness, fear, help.  Just as the Lord was present to the people in the Gospel, he is present to us!  May we reach out and let him take us by the hand.

The crowds drawn to Jesus in the Gospel are healed and fed by the Lord, who again at the Last Supper does the following with bread:

  • Takes
  • Blesses
  • Breaks
  • Gives

This happened at the Feeding Miracle and the Last Supper, and it happens at every Mass!  We receive the Lord himself, who strengthens and nourishes us so that we will be a blessing to the people and situations that confront us!
