The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Yeast of the Pharisees and of Herod

The Yeast of the Pharisees and of Herod

Reflection on the Gospel of the Tuesday
In The Sixth Week Of Ordinary Time

 

Mark 8: 14-21

In today’s Gospel reading the disciples are worried about having too little bread. They had been witnesses to two extraordinary events: five thousand people fed with five loaves and four thousand with seven, running up to today’s reading.

The disciples were all Israelites who knew the story of how the Lord their God had fed their ancestors with manna in the desert. Yet they did not seem to have grasped the implication of the miracle they had just witnessed, nor the divine identity of the One putting the questions to them now, with regards to their own personal needs and lives.

Finally Jesus said to them, “𝘿𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙣𝙙”. Understanding is one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit given to us to make sense of what is happening in our lives and around us all the time. Let us ask for an increase in that understanding, specially when the going it tough.
