WEDNESDAY 1ST WEEK OF ADVENT
WEDNESDAY 1ST WEEK OF ADVENT - YEAR I
On this mountain the LORD of hosts will provide for all peoples A
feast of rich food and choice wines, juicy, rich food and pure,
choice wines. On this mountain he will destroy the veil that veils
all peoples, The web that is woven over all nations; he will destroy
death forever. The Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces;
The reproach of his people he will remove from the whole earth; for
the LORD has spoken. On that day it will be said: "Behold our God,
to whom we looked to save us! This is the LORD for whom we looked;
let us rejoice and be glad that he has saved us!" For the hand of the
LORD will rest on this mountain.
At that time: Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, went up on the
mountain, and sat down there. Great crowds came to him, having with
them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute, and many others.
They placed them at his feet, and he cured them. The crowds were
amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the deformed made whole, the
lame walking, and the blind able to see, and they glorified the God
of Israel. Jesus summoned his disciples and said, "My heart is moved
with pity for the crowd, for they have been with me now for three
days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away
hungry, for fear they may collapse on the way." The disciples said
to him, "Where could we ever get enough bread in this deserted place
to satisfy such a crowd?" Jesus said to them, "How many loaves do
you have?" "Seven," they replied, "and a few fish." He ordered the
crowd to sit down on the ground. Then he 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. They picked up the fragments left over - seven
The miracles Jesus worked were almost always the result of faith.
Where there was little or no faith, he was rendered incapable of
Perhaps too often we approach God with the wrong requests and for the
wrong reasons. Fortunately for us, God overlooks this and usually
gives us something else, something better, and something more. He
recognizes our weakness, our lack of faith, but responds
nonetheless. He knows the deep hunger of our heart. Today, let us
develop a contemplative heart so that we can tune ourselves to he
would like to tell us.
