The Paltry Offering

I can imagine the disciples’ feelings of inadequacy in today’s Gospel as they brought forth their paltry offering of five fish and two loaves of bread. This was not enough to feed themselves, let alone the entire crowd! Yet, Jesus asked what they had. So they gave it to him.
We do the same thing at every offertory at every Mass. The collection of our money and a family bringing up the bread and wine is like the disciples showing Jesus their fish. It is so little. We really offer Jesus so little.
