WK 19B (2018)

The “Bread of Life” discourse promises that people will attain eternal life by “coming to Jesus” and being in union, communion with Him. Jesus is the Bread of Life that has come down from heaven; is the revelation of God given to the people. The fundamental reaction called for is one of “coming to Him,” which is synonymous with belief in Him. We need to respond with an “Amen.” “So be it.” Amen means we are on solid ground. We give our yes, our consent. It requires an openness on our part. For Jesus is the essential for life; therefore, to refuse this invitation and command of Jesus is to miss life and die. Let us make each and every Eucharist a renewal of our faith, our allegiance in Jesus and His teaching, a renewal of faith in the “bread of Life.”
