A joyful journey: Advent day by day

Wednesday: "Feeding the hungry"

(Reference: Isaiah 25:6-10a; Matthew 15:29-37)

Isaiah paints God as a magnanimous host, providing rich food and the finest wines for his guests. God not only welcomes and feeds but comforts and forgives. The son of God shows us this maternal face of God when he has compassion on the hungry crowd. He is the one for whom we have waited, the one we embody when we serve at the soup kitchen, invite the lonely to our family feasts and fuss over the meal as though it were Christmas dinner.
