Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: 1 Kings 19.4-8; Psalm 34; Ephesians 4.30 – 5.2; John 6.41-51.

An angel of the Lord provides Elijah with food for the journey. He eats and is strengthened for the path he must travel. Jesus calls himself 'the living bread that has come down from heaven.' In order to partake of Jesus' mission, we too must be broken and shared. Only then will we become imitators of God and live in his love, as St. Paul recommends. Consuming the bread who is Jesus enables us to participate in God's saving plan. Jesus gives no less than his whole self.

Next Week's Readings: Proverbs 9.1-6; Psalm 34; Ephesians 5.15-20; John 6.51-58.
