 Suppose your CCD teacher asks you to prepare a speech for your CCD class on “What is impossible for human beings is possible with God.” (Luke 18:27). Prepare such a speech using the miracles of Jesus in Chapter 6 of John’s gospel.  In the miracle of the loaves and the fish, Jesus multiplied a boy’s very small contribution of five loaves and two fish and fed a huge crowd. Using this miracle in Chapter 6 of John’s gospel, prepare a speech to your CCD class to explain why even our very small gifts, given willingly, have great value in the eyes of the Lord.  Give a speech on the events in John Chapter 6 that shows Jesus’ divine power and his authority over nature. Address your speech to a Christian audience not well acquainted with Scripture.  Briefly meditate on Peter’s words in John 6:68: “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” Suppose a Catholic friend of yours tells you that he/she has decided to leave the Church and the faith. What advice can you give your friend to prompt him/her to reconsider the decision? Give a speech as if you are talking to your friend. Feel free to refer to the events and the words of Jesus in John Chapter 6.

In the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and the fish, we read that everyone had plenty to eat, and there was leftover. Jesus tells his disciples to “Gather the fragments left over, so that nothing will be wasted” (John, Chapter 6:12). Write a brief essay on the blessings you have received from the Lord, and what you can do to avoid their wastage (wastage of food, your time and other blessings in your life). The first part of Chapter 6 in John’s gospel describes the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fish. Suppose you were among the crowds gathered there and had eaten the bread and the fish.  As someone who had witnessed the miracle, write a brief essay on what your feeling might have been. What would you have thought of Jesus Christ, the miracle worker?

A Protestant friend of yours argues with  you claiming that in John Chapter 6, Jesus is talking about eating his flesh and drinking his blood only symbolically and figuratively. Using the narration in John 6, write a reply to your friend in order to convince him/her that Jesus’ words mean that what looks and tastes like bread and wine are not bread and wine but the Body and the Blood of Christ.
