The bread of life

In this week’s gospel reading, Jesus tells the Jews, “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” The Rev. Christopher Thomas in his sermon, speaks about their incredulity in the face of such a claim. They wanted to have the presence of God in their lives, but trusting that this guy Jesus was the way to God was a bit much for them to swallow. Father Christopher tells us that disbelief is a human condition. But with faith and through the ministry of being present in all that we do, we are invited by Jesus to the “celestial feast.”
