The feeding of the five thousand: a reflection on the CAFOD icon

CAFOD Northampton with Sister Esther

Sister Esther, who created the icon, presents it to young CAFOD supporters, with Frank Sudlow from Northampton diocese.

This unique and beautiful icon helps us to reflect on the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand. Take a few minutes to watch and meditate as the symbolism of the icon is explored, and pray for our sisters and brothers around the world who are hungry.

This holy icon was produced by Sr Esther of the Benedictine Community in Turvey, Bedfordshire and donated to CAFOD to support the Hungry for Change campaign in 2013.
