As Jesus and his disciples were proceeding on their journey someone said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go.” Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere to rest his head.”
Then Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed them to those who were reclining, and also as much of the fish as they wanted. When they had had their fill, he said to his disciples, “Gather the fragments left over, so that nothing will be wasted.”
The apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away by ourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” People were coming and going in great numbers and they had no opportunity even to eat.
