Eucharist – Rejected: In today’s Gospel, many of Jesus’ followers could not believe in the Truth that the Eucharist is truly His real Flesh and real Drink, that offers Eternal Life.  Do we celebrate the Eucharist with great devotion, love and gratitude to Jesus who suffered grievously all for our sake and our Salvation?

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 6:60, 64-66

After hearing his doctrine, many of the followers of Jesus said, ‘This is intolerable language. How could anyone accept it?’ Jesus was aware that his followers were complaining about it and said, ‘Does this disturb you? What if you should see the Son of man ascend to where he was before?

‘It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh has nothing to offer. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. But there are some of you who do not believe.’ For Jesus knew from the outset who did not believe and who was to betray him.

He went on, ‘This is why I told you that no one could come to me except by the gift of the Father.’ After this, many of his disciples went away and accompanied him no more.
