On Today’s Gospel

Are we blind to God’s people? Have we allowed our prejudices to obscure our sight? Have we allowed self righteousness and uncharitable zeal to limit our experience of God’s love and wisdom? Are we fearful of bringing the Lord’s message and truth to others in order to set them free?

Unless we strive daily to seek God’s Will for us; to seek His knowledge, wisdom, peace, grace and love. Through prayer, reflection and of His Word; how can we grow, in faith, love and understanding? How can we share the ever renewing, ever growing, every living, ever faithful love of God if we do not experience it for ourselves?

How then can we fully embrace and cherish the Supreme love of God in the Eucharist? Life not taken but given freely without end.

Lord Jesus I seek to live a resurrected life in You. Amen

FIRST READING
Acts 9:1–20

GOSPEL
John 6:52–59

The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his Flesh to eat?” Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the Flesh of the Son of Man and drink his Blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my Flesh is true food, and my Blood is true drink. Whoever eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood remains in me and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.” These things he said while teaching in the synagogue in Capernaum.
