Living Bread
As we continue the “living bread” discourse, we hear the growing controversy which will end with many of the disciples leaving Jesus. The language is hard for many to swallow. With 2000 years of history behind us, the words hardly create a stir today. Yet, as then, God is ultimately concerned with what we consume. From the time of Eden to this present moment there has been controversy about the food we eat. Today’s Gospel challenges us to take a look at what we consume and make a steady diet. Our appetites are enormous and go beyond hungers of the stomach. We look for what will “fill us up” and satisfy us. Our appetites at times are insatiable leaving us wanting more and more. Jesus challenges us by asking us to feed on him. This is the food that comes down from heaven which satisfies our deepest hunger—that empty hole that never gets filled up. It is that eternal yearning within for what will satisfy the longings of the human heart. In a world of want and need where we grow old and sick, where violence and terror overwhelm, God offers us the food that satisfies by sharing his life and love with us. In our Eucharist, we, who consume God, are ultimately consumed by the life we receive. We become what we eat. “Whoever eats this bread has eternal life.” This is wonderful fare for us, mere mortals.
