Reviews - What do customers think about Five Loaves & Two Fish?

Five loaves and two fish- food for the soul.  Apr 13, 2008
Father Francis Xavier Nguyen survived the worst that the communist re-educators could throw at him, including nine years of solitary confinement, and he retained his faith due to strong system of values and beliefs. Guidance came from the words of Monsignor John Walsh, imprisoned in China, "I am not going to wait, I will leave each present moment, filling it to the brim with love". Engaging his guards in conversation caused a major discipline problem for the communist authorities.

This small book is packed with inspiration, and the loaves and fish title draws on the Biblical story of Jesus feeding the crowd of five thousand.

The seven homilies are:
The first loaf: Living the present moment;
The second loaf: Discerning between God and god's works;
The third loaf: A fixed point of reference;
The fourth loaf: The Eucharist- my only strength;
The fifth loaf: Love and unity- the testimony of Jesus;
The first fish: My first love- The Immaculate Virgin Mary; and
The second fish: I have chosen Jesus.

Conducting the Eucharist, even in isolation using bread crumbs and "stomach medicine", enabled Father Francis not only to survive but help others also.

One stands in awe of this priestly man who survived, both physically and spiritually, when others would have fallen by the way.

Profound and simple meditations  Sep 3, 2001
This is a treasure of a book. The prayers and meditations contained in it are jewels polished by long hours of suffering. Archbishop Van Thuan spent 13 years in prison in Vietnam, and 9 of those years in solitary confinement. His great love for Christ and for his people illuminated the darkness of his suffering and now shine from every word. His heart was crushed in the winepress of sorrow, and the wine of his words will bring life to your spirit. They are simple and spare, pure and joyful, rich and sparkling with eternal wisdom. This is a small book, but profoundly beautiful.
