The night after winning the heavyweight championship of the world from Jess Willard, Jack Dempsey woke up in his hotel room at 2 o’clock in the morning. Suddenly, he felt empty inside. He said later, “Success didn’t taste the way I thought it would. I’d won a world title. So What!” The human heart has a hunger and a thirst that nothing on earth can satisfy. It is a lesson we have to learn if we are to find true happiness. You see, the day will come when we discover the truth of Jesus’ words in today’s gospel: “Do not work for food that perishes but for food that endures for eternal life; I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me will never hunger, and whoever believes in Me will never thirst.” How hungry or thirsty are you?
