Thirst and hunger are realities of life. Throughout the readings today we hear the Lord inviting us into the banquet to eat and drink. When was the last time you ate a great meal? Were your needs met or did you walk away unfulfilled? Jesus knows our hunger and he knows how to satisfy the deepest longing of our hearts, to be in union with God. We need only to bring that hunger to him. He takes our little offering, blesses it, breaks it, and gives it away; we see this same action in the Eucharist at every Mass.
