He’s the disciple who always seems to be getting the tough questions from the Lord. When they found themselves surrounded by a hungry crowd of 5000, our Lord turned to Philip and asked him, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?”
Of course, Philip said what any rational person would:“It would take more than half a year’s wages to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”
Today’s Gospel passage is a veritable treasure trove of quotable quotes. Our Lord speaks many unforgettably powerful words here. Among the many great lines in the passage, what I find most striking today is the architecture of God’s heart that our Lord Jesus describes. “In my Father’s house, there are many dwelling places,” Jesus assures his disciples.
