"Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You?" —Matthew 25:37

When Jesus comes in glory on Judgment Day, He will judge us on whether we fed Him by feeding the least of His and our brothers and sisters (Mt 25:35, 42). Jesus is so concerned with feeding us that, when Peter told Jesus that he loved Him, Jesus said: "Feed My lambs" and "Feed My sheep" (Jn 21:15, 17). To feed us, Jesus even went to the unimaginable extreme of making Himself the Bread of Life (Jn 6:35) and feeding us with His own body and blood (Jn 6:55).

Therefore, we must:

  • be the best stewards possible in tithing and giving alms to feed those starving physically,
  • be nourished daily by the Church's teachings, especially in the Bible, and by the Eucharist,
  • invite others to be spiritually nourished daily by God's Word and the Eucharist, and
  • pray for Christians who might be caught up in the culture of death or suffering from some form of spiritual anorexia.

Jesus died to feed His sheep. We must receive Him, become like Him, and die with Him to feed the sheep. When Jesus returns, He wants to say to each of us: "Come. You have My Father's blessing! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me food" (Mt 25:34-35).

Prayer: Abba, "give us today our daily bread" (Mt 6:11).
Promise: "Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your fellow countrymen. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord." —Lv 19:18
Praise: Charlotte committed to receiving the Eucharist as often as possible. Most weeks she is able to go to Mass daily.
