Trinity VII on Jesus' miracles
Jesus' miracles were not so much to demonstrate who he is, as because of who he is. He healed the sick and raised the dead because of his compassion, the same compassion that will bring to pass perfect healing and the resurrection of the body for all his beloved people. And of all his miracles, his feedings in the wilderness were perhaps most helpful to consider, for in truth, we are even now in the wilderness of a fallen world, of life beset by trouble and affliction. But out of compassion, as he fed them with bread, so does he feed us with the Blessed Sacrament, the Bread of Life. And as then his miracle was unseen, so is it unseen here: we cannot see how this could have become his holy Body and Blood, but we know it is so, because he has told us. And see, this is our Bread for the journey, lest we faint by the way on our trek home. Sermon for Trinity VII.
