Dear Friend in the Lord,
“Bread of Life”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims to the crowd, “I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Me will never be hungry; he who believes in Me will never thirst.” Ponder on, “Do we value the Eucharist as the greatest divine Gift of our earthly journey; to prepare us to gain Eternal Life after we die?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
The people said to Jesus, ‘What sign will you give to show us that we should believe in you? What work will you do? Our fathers had manna to eat in the desert; as scripture says: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’
Jesus answered: ‘I tell you solemnly, it was not Moses who gave you bread from heaven, it is my Father who gives you the bread from heaven, the true bread; for the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.’
‘Sir,’ they said, ‘give us that bread always.’ Jesus answered them: ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never be hungry; he who believes in me will never thirst.’
