The Responsorial Psalm mirrors much of this discussion regarding power and wealth. There are times when we, as human beings, may almost believe that we are above God. It is important that we remember the mission of love and peace that God has given to us. God is many things to us. He is our advocate and ruler, but he is also our sustainer. He sustains humanity in its rightful position in the universe.
Finally, the Gospel reading from Mark presents us with another familiar story: the multiplication of loaves and fish. In this reading, Jesus is the intercessor between humanity and God. He provides us with a model for care in his attention to the hungry crowd, and yet he performs a miracle that none of us could begin to explain. What reason does Jesus have for doing this? Is he interested in only feeding the crowd, or is his focus also on proving the power that he possesses through his Father? We are called to read the story from both angles. Through faith, we can come to know Jesus through both of these ways.
