What Happened that Day?

What happened that day?
The day five loaves and two fish
were enough to feed five thousand?
And not only that, but they gathered
twelve baskets of leftovers.

He took the fish and loaves,
gave thanks and blessed them,
and everyone ate.
They all had their fill.

I have some hypotheses,
different thoughts about
how it might have happened.
But I don’t really know how it did.

But I think maybe I know
all I need to know:
People were hungry
and Jesus fed them.

Just as Jesus continues
to feed us today.

Today’s Gospel reading is John’s account of the feeding of the multitude. What happens when you pray with that passage?
