Five barley loaves and two small fish

We’re in the middle of a multiple-Sunday stretch where the gospel comes from a portion of John’s gospel in which Jesus explains that he is the bread of life. Here’s what Sundays and Seasons has to say about the readings for this week.

Apparently not satisfied by Jesus’ feeding of thousands, some who were there press him for a sign of his power; perhaps it is daily manna they want. As always in John’s gospel when people want a sign, Jesus offers himself. He is the bread come from heaven to give life to the world. He calls us to come to him and believe in him, and through that relationship to know the one who sent him.
