Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

Why only be a Christian when you can be another Christ?

In today’s Gospel, Jesus walks by the Sea of Galilee and encounters "great crowds" of needy folks:  the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute…and He cured them!  And He lovingly fed them with the seven loaves of bread and the few fish that his disciples had brought along.  There were leftovers…and the Message of God’s Love continues to be spread by you and me.
