Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus – Eternal Life” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, many could not accept Jesus’ doctrine of the Eucharist.  He was truly offering the Divine Gift of His real Flesh and Blood; for the Salvation of all peoples, who believes in Him.  Ponder on, “Those who did not accept Jesus’ doctrine, were preventing themselves from receiving God’s Divine Power, Life and Love.”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 6:60, 64-69

After hearing his doctrine, many of the followers of Jesus said, ‘This is intolerable language. How could anyone accept it?’

‘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. Then Jesus said to the Twelve, ‘What about you, do you want to go away too?’ Simon Peter answered, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the message of eternal life, and we believe; we have come to know that you are the Holy One of God.’
