"; $cLettura2="Can anything cut us off from the love of Christ -- can hardships or distress, or persecution, or lack of food and clothing, or threats or violence;

No; we come through all these things triumphantly victorious, by the power of him who loved us.

For I am certain of this: neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nothing already in existence and nothing still to come, nor any power,

nor the heights nor the depths, nor any created thing whatever, will be able to come between us and the love of God, known to us in Christ Jesus our Lord.

"; $cLetturaV="When Jesus received this news he withdrew by boat to a lonely place where they could be by themselves. But the crowds heard of this and, leaving the towns, went after him on foot.

So as he stepped ashore he saw a large crowd; and he took pity on them and healed their sick.

When evening came, the disciples went to him and said, 'This is a lonely place, and time has slipped by; so send the people away, and they can go to the villages to buy themselves some food.'

Jesus replied, 'There is no need for them to go: give them something to eat yourselves.'

But they answered, 'All we have with us is five loaves and two fish.'

So he said, 'Bring them here to me.'

He gave orders that the people were to sit down on the grass; then he took the five loaves and the two fish, raised his eyes to heaven and said the blessing. And breaking the loaves he handed them to his disciples, who gave them to the crowds.

They all ate as much as they wanted, and they collected the scraps left over, twelve baskets full.

Now about five thousand men had eaten, to say nothing of women and children.

"; $cMemoria="Eighteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time"; $cOmelia="The Gospel for this eighteenth Sunday recounts the first multiplication of the loaves in Matthew (14:13-21). The episode is reported a good six times in the Gospels (twice in Matthew and Mark and once in Luke and John, respectively). The miracle had evidently caused quite an impression on the community of the first disciples, since it is mentioned in the few Gospel pages that are common to all four evangelists and that synthesize Jesusí very mission. From the beginning of the narrative, we are touched by the tenderness and compassion of the prophet from Nazareth.
After learning that the Baptist was killed, Jesus withdraws to the desert. The Baptistís death is a dangerous sign for him, too. But the people keep following him; they track him closely. This time, after he has gone into the boat, they hurry and run to the other shore where he will land. In effect, when he reaches the other side of the lake, Jesus sees that whole crowd before him. They are agitated , exhausted by fatigue and, above all, seeking a shepherd, someone who will tend to their needs. Jesusí heart, as in many other circumstances, cannot keep from being moved. He heals the sick people they bring before him, and then, as was his habit, he stays with them and begins to speak and teach. Everyone listens to him until the evening. It is worth noting that the crowd did not lack bread. What they lacked most of all were true words for their lives, words about their future and their destiny. They lacked someone who would bend down to them and their sick friends. This is why they stayed all day to listen to Jesus. In this scene, we can see the icon of Jesusí words: “One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Nonetheless, the Lord knows that people do live on bread, at least in part. Elsewhere in the Gospel he had said: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink...But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Mt 6:25-34). This is exactly what happens in this passage about the multiplication of the loaves. But the disciples, who believe they are more thoughtful than Jesus, interrupt him in the late afternoon: “This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” This is normal behaviour, almost thoughtful. But Jesus retorts, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” Here is an invitation for everyone to take responsibility against the well-rooted habit of saying: “Every man for himself!” (which is what the disciples are thinking), or “Let the authorities take care of it!” The Lord asks his disciples to think and behave in a completely different way. The crowd does not have to be sent away. They, the disciples, are the ones who should help the people.
The Lord says this knowing full well that the disciples have little at hand: at most five loaves and two fishes - nothing for five thousand men. And yet the disciples should respond and not send anyone away. The miracle begins here, precisely from our weakness placed with trust into the hands of the Lord. It is thus multiplied. Poverty becomes abundance. Miracles, in fact, are often blocked by the greed of individuals and of nations. So many people remain hungry and die, not because food is lacking, but because individuals and nations squander it and destroy it through their greed. In this Gospel passage, it is clear that the Lord works the miracle, but he does not perform it without the disciplesí help. He has need of our hands, even if they are weak; of our resources, even if modest. If all these are gathered in the hands of the Lord, they become strength and wealth. This, too, is the meaning of the twelve baskets full of the bread and fish left over: to each disciple, to each one of the twelve, is entrusted one of these so that he or she may feel the grave and sweet responsibility of distributing that bread which Godís mercy has multiplied in their hands."; ?> ".$cTit_Salmo."
