The Seventeenth Sunday of Ordinary TimeFr. John Gerth
The miracle performed by Elisha finds its perfect fulfillment in Jesus’ feeding of the five thousand. He opens his hands and satisfies our deepest needs. In him we form one body.

Summer greetings to you all!.
This week we are presented with another Eucharistic centered Gospel passage. As we have had a number of these over the past few weeks it might be easy to say to ourselves, "Oh no, not another account of the multiplication of loaves and fish." but instead, let us go on to consider the meaning of this account in the beginning of the Gospel of John, chapter 6, the great dissertation on the Eucharist.
Read Fr. John Gerth's message in its entirety in this week's bulletin.
