Reflection for 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time
In today’s Gospel we see an uncompromising Jesus and His faith in the Eucharist (BREAD OF LIFE). The only thing he demanded from his listeners was “BELIEVE IN THE ONE GOD SENT” (Jn 6:29). When Jesus spoke again and again that they must eat the flesh and drink the blood of the Son of Man, they murmured against Him and his teaching saying: “This saying is hard; who can accept it?” In other words, who can believe this? As a result of this, many of his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. The question raised by Jesus’s followers remains unanswered. The Israelites also asked about the bread they were given from heaven- WHAT IS IT? Which means MANNA. Yes. It is absolutely true that anyone who doubts or questions about the living presence of Jesus Christ can never be with Him to enjoy the power of His Body and Blood.
