May 6 Jesus commanded the people to sit on the green grass in groups of hundreds and fifties. Then looking up to heaven and giving thanks, he broke the bread and divided the fish and gave them to the disciples to distribute. Everyone ate until filled, then the disciples collected twelve baskets of surplus. For he said, “Gather all remnants, for nothing must be wasted.” Those who ate numbered about five thousand men alone, besides women and children.
