April 11, 2016 (John 6:22-29)

Some people who were overweight were talk amongst themselves. One said, “I over eat when I get bored or depressed. I don’t know why I do it.” Another said, “I think I mistake my spiritual hunger for my physical hunger.” In today’s gospel, Jesus tells us we have two lives to nourish: physical and spiritual. The reading invites us to ask ourselves: have we ever caught ourselves trying to fill a spiritual emptiness with material things?”
