Today’s gospel was Matthew’s account of the feeding of the five thousand with five barley loaves and 2 fish. This feeding miracle points forward to the spiritual feeding that will take place in the Last Supper and the Eucharist. Our Lord’s  actions in today’s gospel are similar to those of the Last Supper: “Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and gave them out.”

The following is an article from the last Catholic Voice about a Eucharistic Miracle that happened in Argentina during Holy Week. The article is followed by a link to another Catholic Voice article about a US diocese that is re-introducing the practice of receiving Holy Communion on the tongue and whilst kneeling as a way of showing greater respect for this great and Divine Mystery: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-eChbWa9e_sYk9kZE16Y3Q5VHg2UjNodTIyb3JxNWlmbThZ/view?usp=sharing
