Healing, nourishment, satisfaction, and abundance are all signs of the presence of the kingdom of God. Jesus’ actions in this gospel, however, reveal an even more telling sign. By taking, blessing, breaking, and giving the bread and fish, he foreshadows the total gift of his very self—on the Cross, in the Eucharist. The fullest presence of the kingdom of God is revealed by the total gift of self. The kingdom of God comes to fulfillment in every act of total self-giving. Liturgy
