Hungry for meaning in life, we come together to be fed at the table of the word, where we are nourished by the word of God, and the table of the Eucharist, where we are nourished by the Body of Christ. After our time together, we go forth, invited to share the sustenance we have received with all whom we meet. Paul reminds the Ephesians that God is “over all and through all and in all” (4:6).
Our challenge is to recognize God in others. Then, seeing God in those who are hungry, actually seeing the face of the Lord in them, we will be driven to make sure they have plenty.
