abundance of the remains, even after such a large number of people have been
fed, stresses the generosity of God, revealed in Jesus. Our God is a generous
God who gives not only bread to the hungry, but even his very self. He showed
this through the Incarnation and the ministry of Jesus. However, this was shown
in the most perfect of ways on the Cross. The miracle is thus a call to accept
the generosity of God and to show that we have accepted it by the generosity we
show to others.
