Jesus is interested not just in our spiritual selves, but in our physical needs as well. After Jesus raises Jairus’ daughter, he says, “give her something to eat.” When the disciples return from mission, Jesus can see they are exhausted and says, “Come away by yourselves and rest.” Jesus has come to satisfy the hunger – both physical and spiritual – not just of the people of the Covenant, but of the whole world.

-Br. Geoffrey Tristram, SSJE
