Without bread, without food, physical life perishes. Without Jesus, without his “flesh for the life of the world” in the Eucharist, our life of intimate communion with God will perish. It’s that simple – and it’s that crucial. Eleven times in this discourse Jesus speaks of himself as the bread of life; he’s really hoping .. read more

21st Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B August 23, 2015 John 6:60-69 When Jesus starts talking about his eating his body and drinking his blood, today’s Gospel tells us, “Many of his disciples returned to their former way of life, and no longer accompanied him.” They said, “This saying is hard; who can accept it?” .. read more

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year B August 16, 2015 John 6:51-58 “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you.” Think real hard about that statement from your Savior: “You do not have life within you.” Tell me about your life. How’s .. read more

John Chapter 6 is all about the Eucharist, and the Eucharist is, as the Catechism teaches, us “the source and summit of the Christian life” (Catechism #1324).
