April 20, 2015 (John 6:22-29)

Today’s Gospel comes from Chapter 6 of John, the “Bread of Life Discourse.” There is a story about some people in a weight-reducing program. They were trying to talk out why they were consistently over eating. One woman said she always headed straight to the fridge when she felt bored or depressed. She just didn’t know why? One of her cohorts in the program suggested that what she had was a”‘spiritual hunger” and that she was trying to satisfy it with physical food.

We all have two hungers: physical and spirituaL. We might ask ourselves if we try to fill our spiritual emptiness with material things?
