Today’s Gospel: John 6:44-51 (The Bread of Life Discourse)
The Bread of Life. Sustains us as we make our journey toward Heaven. Let us consider in this reflection the simple nourishment of bread. It sustains us, it strengthens us, it helps us move forward, it fills our belly with contentment so that the hunger pangs quiet down. It is through the simple digestion of bread that we can take another step forward; knowing our body received the nourishment of a piece of bread. Simple yet very profound.
Pondering these thoughts today: Well, you knew the question was coming: What do you expect to receive? When you come to Mass or to the altar what do you expect? A healing? Forgiveness? Comfort during difficult times? Or a place to find rest so that you can rejuvenate? Well the good news is that you can find all that and even more. Jesus, through the Eucharist strengthens us and enables us to be strong in our faith. Nothing else in this world can do for us what Jesus can do for us through the Eucharist. That is why going to Mass every single Sunday and Holy Day and as often as possible is so important. Much to think about my friends.
LOVE YOU GUYS !!!!
