#24 Lent Pilgrimage, Tabgha

?How many loaves have you? Go and see.? ~Mark 6:38

Tabgha, on the shore of Lake Galilee, is traditionally regarded as the place where Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes. An altar has been built over the rock where he blessed that miraculous food. I kneel to pray at the rock, which is blackened from people?s touch. So many people need so many things multiplied. I sit on a plain wooden bench and watch pilgrims come and go. I think about the things that have multiplied, or that need multiplying, in my life. To capture this inchoate desire for fullness, I buy a Tabgha souvenir for which I have no use at all. Have you been as foolish, and as needy, as I?

What do you need multiplied today?

Prayer: O Spirit, I am grateful, yet always lacking. Fill me.
