FAITH BOOK

20th SUNDAY (B) August 19, 2018

Proverbs 9: 1-6; Psalm 34; Ephesians 5: 15-20; John 6: 51-58

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 Proverbs reading:

 

Wisdom... has spread her table... she calls from the heights out over the city.... "

Come, eat my food, and drink of the wine I have mixed!

Forsake the foolishness that you may live; advanced in the way of understanding."

 

Reflection:

 

Wisdom takes flesh in Jesus, who reveals God’s love and concern that we take in the right kind of nourishment. God says to us, "I see your hungers that only I can fully satisfy. I send you my Son, Receive the food and drink he offers you – his very self." Like Wisdom in Proverbs, Jesus sets a table and invites us to be nourished on himself, "true food... true drink."

 

So, we ask ourselves:

 

  • How would you describe your spiritual life... Satisfying? Malnourished? Starving?

  • What do you do and where do you go to feed your spirit?
