Dear Friend in the Lord,

Sincere Faith”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminded the crowds that to gain eternal life, they must witness the Truth of the Messiah with sincerity of heart and in deeds.  Ponder on, “Does our faith express the way we live and relate to others e.g. with compassion, love, generosity, service to those in need, especially the poor?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 6:24-29

After Jesus had fed the five thousand, the people saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into those boats and crossed to Capernaum to look for Jesus. When they found him on the other side, they said to him, ‘Rabbi, when did you come here?’

Jesus answered: ‘I tell you most solemnly, you are not looking for me because you have seen the signs but because you had all the bread you wanted to eat. Do not work for food that cannot last, but work for food that endures for eternal life, the kind of food the Son of Man is offering you, for on him the Father, God himself, has set his seal.’

Then they said to him, ‘What must we do if we are to do the works that God wants?’ Jesus gave them this answer, ‘This is working for God: you must believe in the one he has sent.’
