Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

Sunday's gospel returned me to a previous post from a weekday reading in early May - a story I am still worrying at.

So what was this nameless boy put forward by Andrew doing up on the mountain with five barley loaves and two fishes? That's not a lunch he packed for himself ... that's food for his whole family. For the week. Which he turns over, supposedly without objection.

Could this be the source of Jack selling the family cow for a handful of magic beans?

Yes, he gets twelve baskets of fragments back (maybe) but .. and this is the important but ... somone had to give up everything for the miracle to take place.

Count the cost.
