(St. Scholastica, Virgin)
Jesus summoned the disciples and said, “My heart is moved with pity for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. If I send them away hungry to their homes, they will collapse on the way, and some of them have come a great distance.” Mk_8:1-10
The good shepherd will never abandon nor forsake his flock. In Him is a heart of compassion and mercy! And so we pray, “Lord God of compassion and mercy, may your actions of love for your flock teach us the Way to Your heart. May we become your bread for the world to nourish and strengthen those who hunger for Your Words of hope and love. And may those same Words strengthen us against all temptation. May you be for us that bread of eternal life in every breath we take! Amen!
