Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time –
When Jesus saw the small supply of food to feed the crowd, he raised his eyes to heaven and pronounced a blessing over them. When the disciples saw the small supply of food, they complained. For them there was no cause for rejoicing because of how little they had. There wasn’t enough to be thankful for. We cannot deny the role of gratitude in abundant living. An ungrateful person can never have enough of anything.
