Dear Friend in the Lord,

Bread from Heaven” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to the crowds that every food and material gain in this life, is passing and will perish.  However, when we receive Him who is “Bread from Heaven,” we will “live forever.” Ponder on, “Do we value material things more than receiving Jesus in Holy Communion?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 6:44-51

Jesus said to the crowd: ‘No one can come to me unless he is drawn by the Father who sent me, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets: They will all be taught by God, and to hear the teaching of the Father, and learn from it, is to come to me. Not that anybody has seen the Father, except the one who comes from God: he has seen the Father.

‘I tell you most solemnly, everybody who believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate manna in the desert and they are dead; but this is the bread which comes down from heaven, so that a man may eat it and not die. I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world.’
