A Lamp for Today

Eighth Sunday of Matthew: Loaves, Fish and Family

Our readings for this Sunday give us deep insight into God’s practical care for the new human family that is reconstituted around the God-Man Jesus. He feeds them and suffers for them as the Good Shepherd, and teaches his disciples how to humbly care for others as well. The Holy Theotokos is the example par excellence of one who has learned these lessons of nurture and humility.
