This weeks gospel is the story of the Feeding of the Five Thousand (Matthew 14:13-21), which seems to be a very appropriate gospel reminder to us to remember our brothers and sisters suffering on the Horn of Africa. It is a reminder that out of the little we have, if we all share, we have enough for all and some left over............
This weeks programme is available as a podcast which is a repeat of the Reflection on the Mass with Noirin Lynch originally broadcast on 29th May 2011.
As we are not on air this week to share some thoughts and reflections with you on the readings for this week, we thought we would share some online reflections with you to assist with your lectio/spiritual reading.
