18th  SUNDAY (B) August 4, 2024

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

by 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:


Jesus said, “I am the bread of life,
whoever comes to me will never hunger,
and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”

 

Reflection:


The risen Christ is feeding us through Word and Sacrament in our liturgical celebration today. He is the one we are looking for and not some other sign of material satisfaction? Our strongest hunger is for an intimacy with God; for what Jesus calls today, “eternal life.” He invites us to come to him in trust, with our whole self, body parts and spirit.

 

So, we ask ourselves:

  • Do I feel hunger for God today?  How?

  • What do I need to do to have that hunger satisfied?
