Scripture Readings at Mass Sunday, August 2, 2020

What to listen for in today’s Bible readings

Today’s Gospel reading from Matthew chapter 14 is the narrative of the multiplication of the loaves and fish. Notice how Jesus tells them: “Give them some food yourselves.” Now, of course, they can’t. They, on their own strength, can’t feed an estimated 15-20,000 people. God will feed them, and He will do so in ways far beyond what they can imagine. This was foreshadowed in the first reading from the Prophet Isaiah. See if you can conntect why the Church paired the first reading from Isaiah, the Responsorial Psalm from Psalm 145, and Matthew’s Gospel account.

Today’s homily in one sentence: “I’m not being fed.” Whose responsibility is it to feed you?
