19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, B

Bread from heaven

John 6:41-51

We have been reflecting on the bread that came down from heaven.  Man who eats this bread will live forever.  What does the bread of life affect our lives?

Let us learn about this bread that affects our participation in the Eucharist and in life itself.

First, this bread enables us to learn about the Father.  He's in Jesus himself, body and spirit. Eating this bread will make us one with the source of life, God himself.

Second, this bread will give us the strength to journey through life on a day-to-day basis.  Like food that we need to receive each day, this bread, makes our pilgrimage in this world totally meaningful.

This, this bread enables us to reach our final destination: life everlasting in heaven.
