After finding out about the death of his cousin, John the Baptist, Jesus goes to a secluded place to be alone. However, even Jesus' plans can go awry for, upon his arrival, he and his disciples find that this supposed "secluded place" is teaming with people, all eager to see him. However, instead of growing frustrated, Jesus has compassion on the crowd and spends the day ministering to them. Meanwhile, his disciples identify a major problem: the crowds don't have enough to eat and run the risk of fainting on their way to the nearest village. Their solution is to send them on their way before they grow too hungry. Jesus, however, has other plans in mind. "You give them something to eat," he tells his disciples. What does the famous story of the loaves and fishes have to teach us about the mission of Jesus' disciples – not only the disciples from the first century but also the ones from the TWENTY-FIRST century?
