Daily Lenten Meditation

Each day in Lent, I post a meditation from one of our parishioners. Their names are not listed to protect their privacy

Lessons for the Day:  Genesis 46:1-7,  28-34;  1 Corinthians 9:1-15;  Mark – 6:30-46

43 -And they took up twelve baskets full of fragments, and of the fishes.
44-And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.

One of our most pressing needs as Christians is to have Faith. To accept Christ as our Savior.

The meaning for me is not that Jesus physically fed thousands with five loaves of bread and two fishes. It means that if we have Faith and truly believe, we shall have eternal life.
