What are we to do?

 

Easter Weekday Friday

Acts 5:34-42

John 6:1-15

 

I am going to give you some situations, and I want you to tell me what we are going to do.

 

What are we going to do if it is pouring rain when Mass gets over?

 

What are we going to do with this porcelain doorknob that was found in the ground by the rectory?

 

What are we going to do to help Mr. Czarnopys day a little easier?

 

What are we going to do is a question that gets asked of us and others all the time, and we need to be ready to answer.

 

In our first reading, the religious leaders are trying to figure out what they are going to do with the apostles preaching and talking about Jesus Christ. Gamaliel stands up and says, “Maybe we should do nothing because these men are doing things for God, and we do not want to fight against God.”

 

In our Gospel, Philip asks, “What are we going to do to feed all these people?” A small boy is brought forward with five barley loaves and two fish. Jesus takes this food from the boy, blesses it and distributes it to the people.

 

How often do we say, “What are we going to do?” We come to the Eucharist to know what to do.
