Jn 6: 30-35

So they said to him, “What sign are you going to give us then, so that we may see it and believe you? What work are you performing? Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” Then Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

Walking with Jesus

“What can you do?” The crowd challenges Jesus in today’s Gospel. What good are you? How will you help us?

What do you have to offer? What makes you so special? What sets you apart? If even the Son of God was challenged this way, how much ought these kind of challenges affect us today? Can you see in today’s Gospel a Jesus that has felt some of the same challenges you face? Jesus has heard it before, sure, but can you believe that he is feeling it again, when you feel it?

Does today’s Gospel help you see that Christ walks with you? He weeps with you, gets upset when you get upset, laughs uncontrollably when you laugh with joy? What good is a Jesus who does not walk with you? What would have been the point of his life on earth? Can you feel Jesus presence?

Prayer

Love consists in sharing
what one has and what one is
with those one loves.
Love ought to show itself in deeds
more than in words.
