Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary TimeJn 6:24-35
Here Jesus reveals himself as the bread of life sent from heaven. The people have followed Him because he multiplied the loaves and fish and fed the five thousand. They want to see what else Jesus has for them. But He directs them to work for bread that does not perish, treasure for eternal life. And Jesus instructs them to believe in whom God has sent. And Jesus continues to point to The Father.
They ask again for the bread that never perishes. Jesus identifies Himself as that bread. This leads to questioning of Jesus’ teaching.
Do you believe in the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist?
Do you show Jesus the love due Him when you receive Him in Holy Communion?
