"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,

Fr. Voigt, "Every nation requires this sustenance"

Fr. Voigt, "Every nation requires this sustenance"
The center of every social body requires nutrition.  Food keeps us together and strengthens our bonds with one another.  Food supplies the power upon which we live and work.  Without this power and without a good source of food we become weak and fruitless.  As this applies to our physical nature so it applies to our spiritual nature as well.  "You are what you eat."  This remark wins acclaim in all levels of the person's life.  Eat junk food and become a junkie.  Eat nutritious and wholesome food and the body responds with energy.  Eat the Bread of Life and the life of Christ thrives within the soul and informs the entire body as well.  

Consider the second multiplication which took place among the 4000.  There are three levels to each soul and there are three levels to the meaning of the Multiplication.  Our consideration is with the mystical level of the miracle.  The four thousand is a perfect number representing the perfection of the church in which a thousand are recorded from the east, west, north and south.  The apostles have 7 loaves by which they are to feed the multitude.  Seven gifts of the Holy Ghost help to give us the depth of meaning for the seven sacraments
which the faithful receive to grow in eternal life.

The multitude is told to sit on the ground because they are going to receive heavenly food.  This is the food that all souls desire and now the Gentiles are given the power to enter eternal life through this gift of God.  There are seven baskets of fragments left which indicate that everything is under the plan of God and nothing is left to chance.  All the fragments of our lives will be used by God for the sanctification of our souls. The eternal principle of providence is to accept all from the hands of God and deny nothing which comes to us.  Seek first the kingdom of God and all else will be given thee besides.  

Note that Jesus takes the bread and breaks acting as the eternal high priest but gives the bread to the disciples to distribute.  Gentiles follow the Jew but recognize that in God there is this priority of the Jewish nation for eternal life.  The Jews received the holy Eucharist from Jesus Himself.  The apostles perform the 
task of gathering up the fragments.  It is the priesthood that retains its mission over the Mystical Body of our Lord and it is the priesthood that must interpret the meaning of the times in which we find ourselves.

Consider well that all holiness comes from the center of the Sacramental System, the Holy Eucharist.  Through the holy Eucharist we live and move and have our being.  Jew and Gentile find the center of their eternal life in the Sacrifice of the Lord upon Calvary.  In the futile future there will be unity through the recognition of the Presence of the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity in the most holy of the Sacraments:  the Body and Blood of Jesus.  With St. Thomas Aquinas who was asked by the Lord what he wished for writing so eloquently about this Divine Gift we answer:
"Only Thou, oh Lord, only Thou!"

Love the Blessed Sacrament and prepare well each time in its reception.  God bless you all.

In the hearts of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Fr. Voigt
