Saturday Song

This is not a song, but it is a video worth sharing. In this week’s Gospel we hear about the loaves and the fishes, and I could not help but think of that very Gospel as I heard Father Ed Schmidt, SJ talk about food, waste and feeding people in our times. As he says himself, the Food Network is not where you would typically find a social teaching, but in typically Ignatian style (Father Schmidt is a Jesuit), he finds God “in all things.” (I also wanted to post a Jesuit video as the feast of St. Ignatius is coming up on July 31.)

  1. As followers of Christ we are responsible for solutions to these complex challenges in our society. Matthew 25:31-46 is our instruction manual. In the Toronto area there is an organization called Second Harvest through which many supermarkets and restaurants do provide food to charitable organizations rather than throwing it out. The community is also involved as the supermarkets collect donations as well.

    Thanks for making us all aware of this challenge in our society as awareness is the beginning of finding solutions.
