Jesus multiplied the loaves and the fish solely for the purpose of fulfilling the Will of His Heavenly Father. In multiplying the loaves and the fish, Jesus prefigured the only food which truly satiates the human soul in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Eucharist. For only in the Eucharist do we receive Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. Only in the Eucharist do we receive the Sacrificial Love of His Crucifixion and Resurrection. Only in the Eucharist are we drawn into Jesus, in His Mystical Body, within His Church in heaven and on earth, reconciled with God, and united with all of God’s believers worldwide.
Only in the Eucharist is found the food of forgiveness, reconciliation, and charity.
Yet, like the Israelites in the desert, many Americans–to include ‘Catholics’ and ‘Christians’–prefer the bread of Egypt, in the bread of slavery, to the manna which falls from heaven.
How else can we explain the very existence of a human killing factory, state funded, within our borders? For Planned Parenthood is nothing more than a baby-crushing, baby-grinding, baby-mutilating mill. This mill offers the bread of convenience separated from the responsibility of parenthood. This bread is eaten with the butter of greed and the jam of the blood of millions of innocents.
How else can we explain the very existence of a suicidal society, hell-bent on self destruction? For America is neck deep in the ‘culture of death.’ Hidden behind selfish, rationalized, political, and diabolical phrases such as ‘women’s reproductive rights,’ ‘mercy killing,’ and ‘Planned’ parenthood, American’s have made termination of life into an everyday, normal activity. Ours is the bread of guilt and shame. Ours is the bread of a stone-cold-killer.
How else can we explain the manipulating of tradition, revelation, and nature, into marriages which promote no-creation over procreation, and sodomy over the intercourse of ‘two becoming one?’ This is the bread of selfish perversion. This is the bread grinded by demons.
Reflecting on the Eucharist we find bread for Truth, bread for sanity, bread for charity, bread for transcendence, bread for reconciliation, bread for compassion, and bread for self-dying, dying to oneself to Rise for someone better in Christ.
This bread is freshly baked in Love.
All other bread is hardened in selfishness, moldy in human guilt, over-processed in anti-Christian ideology, and unworthy of human consumption in its promotion of human destruction.
Yet, we must ask, ‘do we have eyes to see, and ears to hear?’
