Dear Friend in the Lord,

Eucharist – Faith: In today’s Gospel, many of Jesus’ disciples left Him because they could not believe that Jesus is offering His Real Flesh and Real Blood in the Eucharist. Ponder on, “Is our faith in the Eucharist strong and deep, and do we experience a renewed spiritual strength to face challenges, after receiving Jesus”?

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 those who did not believe and who it was that would betray him. He went on, ‘This is why I told you that no one could come to me unless the Father allows him.’

After this, many of his disciples left him and stopped going with him. Then Jesus said to the Twelve, ‘What about you, do you want to go away too?’ Simon Peter answered, ‘Lord, who shall we go to? You have the message of eternal life, and we believe; we know that you are the Holy One of God.’
