Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Proverbs 9.1-6; Psalm 34; Ephesians 5.15-20; John 6.51-58.

For five consecutive weeks now our Church has had us reflect on the Gospel of John, chapter 6, in which Jesus reveals himself to be the Bread of Life. How central this concept is to our faith that it takes a lifetime to even begin to fathom its significance. Jesus gives us his very flesh and blood to consume! We are called to such intimacy. How awesome and incomprehensible.  Our most appropriate response is to bow down in adoration and total wonder at this awesome mystery of our God.

Next Week's Readings: Joshua 24.1-2a, 15-17, 18b; Psalm 34; Ephesians 4.32 -5.1-2, 21-32; John 6.53, 60-69.
