Nineteenth Sunday Ordinary Time

1 Cor 6:19-20:  Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

  Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, we confess to you that we sometimes lose sight of how valuable our body is to you. With aging and the other challenges that daily tells again us that our body is a vessel of decay, we find it hard to believe that we can exalt you with it. Please, through your indwelling Spirit, quicken in us a deeper respect and appreciation of your presence in us. In the name of Infant Jesus, we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 6:41-51)
God offers his people plentiful life, but we each one of us can miss it. What is the bread of life that Jesus offers? It is first of all the life of God himself, life which continues in us not only now in this present age but also in the time to come. The Rabbis said that the generation in the wilderness has no role in the life to come. In the Book of Numbers it is testimonied that the people who rejected to brave the dangers of the Promised Land were condemned to wander in the wilderness awaiting they died. The Rabbis believed that the father who missed the Promised Land also missed the life to come. When Jesus gives us real life he brings us into a new association with God, a relationship of trust, love, and submission. And he offers us real, plentiful, sustaining life which last forever – a life of everlasting love, fellowship, communion, and union with the One who made us in love to be jointed with him forever. To refuse Jesus is to reject eternal life, unending life with the Heavenly Father. To accept Jesus as the bread of heaven is not only life and spiritual food for this world but glory in the world to come. Do we accept the Lord Jesus as the bread of life?
