I Kings 19:4-8; Psalm 34;
Ephesians 4: 30-5:2;
John 6: 41-51

by Jude Siciliano, OP


Mini reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. “Faith Book” is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.


From today’s Gospel reading:

 

Amen, amen, I say to you,
whoever believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.

 

Reflection:

 

Jesus is “the bread of life.”  Our faith is a personal conviction that, in him, our God has shared our life and revealed an immense love for us. Faith in Jesus, “the bread of life,” does not guarantee an easy road for us, but it does assure us of God’s life within us.  Belief in “the bread of life, Jesus, give us the strength and courage to do what we must do as Christians in the world.

 

So, we ask ourselves:  

  • What deep hunger do I feel in my life these days?

  •  Through whom or how do I experience Jesus feeding me in that place?
