It is far better to be silent then to speak out the truth. Afterall speaking out is extremely tiresome, sometimes painful and it certainly opens ourselves to trouble even persecution. But how then can we say we love the life, the Truth and the way?

Carrying our cross while making reparation for sins is indeed a Holy honour. For we do so for the love of, our Lord and God, Jesus Christ. And we do so not alone; for we are united with Him through Holy Communion. The Bread of life which nourishes us and gives us life.
And at life’s end we will unite ourself once again with Him as we cry out, Lord into Your hands I commend my spirit. Amen.

FIRST READING
Acts 7:51B8:1a

GOSPEL
John 6:30–35

The crowd said to Jesus: “What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? What can you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.” So Jesus said to them, Amen, amen, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” So they said to Jesus, “Sir, give us this bread always.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”
