Reflection: We all love a good meal. We look forward to any meal, specially if it is one that celebrates a special occasion or event. People gather, there is food and drink; there may be singing dancing; stories are told and memories are created. Meals bring people together.

Meals, food and celebrating are a central theme and message of readings this Sunday. We are told that Elisha, a man of God, is brought bread, the first fruits, twenty barely loaves and fresh grain.’ On receiving all this food, he asks that it is given away to feed the people. But those with him asked how such little food will feed so many people. Again he insists that the food is share out saying, ‘the Lord says this, they will eat and some left over.’ The food was served, everyone had plenty to eat and there was food left over.

This scene is repeated in the gospel. After Jesus has spoken to the people and healed those who were sick; Jesus asked his disciples to feed the crowd. They said that it would cost far too much to feed to such a large crowd. But Andrew said that there was a boy who had a five loaves of bread and two fish with him. But again the disciples questioned how such little food would feed so many. Jesus took the food, blest it, gave thanks to God for it and shared it out so that everyone present had more than enough to eat. This miracle shows us the generosity, bountifulness of God. As the Psalm Twenty Three reminds us; the Lord is my shepherd, there is nothing I shall want… the Lord has prepare a banquet for me..’

When we gather to celebrate the Eucharist with each other, we experience the love and generosity that God has for each of us. We present God with simple and ordinary bread and wine. God accepts, blesses them and through the power of the Holy Spirit they are changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus. Then they are freely given back to us by God to feed, nourish and strengthen us.

This week, let us offer God our lives so that we too will changed and transformed in ways we can’t even imagine. (Michael Moore OMI)

Murroe Boher Bord na nOg would like to congratulate our U11 Hurlers, who won the Rhona Kett Sheridan cup on Saturday 16th June, and also to our u9’s, who were beaten in the final of the Reale Family Cup on the same day. Congrats, also to Cillian Holmes and John O’Keeffe, who were voted players of their respective tournaments on the day. We would very much like to thank all those who attended, supported and helped out on the days leading up to the tournament and on the day itself. We would like to congratulate, Euan Sheridan, Killian Quaid and Brian O’Keeffe who were selected to play on the Limerick U14 Hurling squad. We would also like to pass on our Congrats to Jack Nicholas who captained Limerick Minors last Sunday, and now leads them into the Munster Final on July 01st, and to David Hickey who is also part of the team.

Reflection: I’m sure that there has been many times when we have been asked by a friend or a family member to do something or to deliver a message for them. Today, as we celebrate the birth of John the Baptist, we are remembering someone who was called by God to deliver a message and a man who took this mission very seriously.

John is often called the last of the Old Testament Prophets. What does this mean? The prophets were God’s messengers. They spoke to the People of Israel in a very specific way. They reminded them of the covenant or agreement that God made with them. God freed them from slavery in Egypt and assured them that they would see the Promised Land. God said to them, ‘I will be your God and you will be my people.’ This promise guided and nourished the people for generations. Over time, however, they forgot all that God had done for them. The prophets came to help them to remember their past and to look to the future with hope. God was always with them and God will always be with them.

John appeared in the desert with a new and radical message; the long awaited and promised Messiah was coming, get ready and prepare for him. John was only the messenger; he himself was not the Messiah. His role was to point to Jesus, to lead people to Jesus and to prepare people for Jesus. John was the messenger in time; Jesus is the Word for eternity. (Michael Moore OMI)
