I was much happier with this homily, given at 10:15 am.  What happened at the "multiplication of the loaves and fishes"?  Did Jesus just get everybody to share?  Would that have served his purpose completely?  We consider the abundance of God's love and accept the challenge, given today by St. Paul, to rely upon a deep source of love and patience in our hearts.

I am somewhat dissatisfied with this homily, given at 8:00 am, so I will give it another try at 10:15 am.  For one thing, the homily goes 11 minutes.  I am consistently urged to preach no more than 10 minutes (in seminary, I was taught that eight minutes is enough!).
