FAITH BOOK

18th SUNDAY (B) August 5, 2018

Exodus 16: 2-4, 12-15; Psalm 78; Ephesians 4: 17, 20-24; John 6: 24-35

Jude Siciliano, OP

 

Mini-reflections on the Sunday scripture readings designed for persons on the run. "Faith Book" is also brief enough to be posted in the Sunday parish bulletins people take home.

 

From today’s Gospel reading:

 

So, the people said to Jesus,

"Sir, give us this bread always."

He said to them, "I am the bread of life,

Whoever comes to me will never hunger,

And whoever believes in me will never thirst."

 

Reflection:

 

While Jesus addresses people’s physical hungers, he also challenges us not to search for physical food alone – for we will be hungry again. He encourages us to come to him for the food that lasts. Why not try to name the hunger we feel at this moment in our lives and then hold out our empty hands and ask Jesus to feed us. He sees our hungers and will not deny us the daily bread we need.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • What is our deepest hunger our most urgent thirst?

  • What physical hunger in the world are we being called to address?
