My heart is moved

Greetings on this the Wednesday of the First Week of Advent
Readings: Is 25:6-10a; PS 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6; Mt 15:29-37
Notes: The LORD is ever attentive to our needs.

This has been true throughout time but is especially manifested in the Life and Message of Jesus Christ.

In this Messiah, Christ, and Son of Man, he came to:

  • Teach Us the ways of righteousness.
  • Heal Us of our infirmities and errors.
  • Save Us from personal sin and social sin.

Jesus summoned his disciples and said,
“My heart is moved … so he feeds us in our deepest hunger.

First reading
On this mountain the LORD of hosts
will provide for all peoples.

The LORD will ingather all peoples, Jews and Gentiles alike.

The web that is woven over all nations;
he will destroy death forever.

The LORD will destroy death by his death and in his resurrection.

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!”

The LORD will destroy the cause of death not by external act alone but in his person.

Responsorial Psalm
I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

Alleluia Verse
Behold, the Lord comes to save his people;
blessed are those prepared to meet him.

Gospel Portion
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.

and they glorified the God of Israel.

Jesus summoned his disciples and said,
“My heart is moved …

The God of the Universe is moved with pity for us and our hunger for him.
The example of the feeding brings about the continuous manifestation of the heart of God being moved:

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 baskets full.

The LORD overflows with his love.

  • Super abundant.
  • Super natural.
  • Entirety of himself.

Peace be with you,
Deacon Gerry
