In today’s Gospel Reading (John 6:30-35), we hear Jesus correcting his listeners that it was not Moses who fed their ancestors in the desert, but God who gave them bread from heaven. Jesus went further to describe himself as he is that bread from heaven. Of course, the audience did not understand. Their lack of faith blinded them to recognize Jesus, the bread of life standing in their midst.
Faith is a response to the invitation of God to join him in friendship. The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines ‘faith” as “a Free assent to the whole truth that God has revealed. A grace, a human act, and the beginning of eternal life” (CCC nos. 150, 153-54, 163).
May our faith in the Eucharist – the Body and Blood of Christ, help us to live, grow, and persevere in that faith until the appointed day when we shall enter into Eternal Life. AMEN.
Peace be with you!
