Gospel Reflection – Wednesday (21 April) 3rd week of Easter
More on the Bread of Life
Fr Paul reads from John’s Gospel (6: 35-40) which follows on from yesterday’s and continues the sermon on the Bread of Life. It explains what the Bread of Heaven or the Bread of Life is.
For Fr Paul, the Bread of Life means living bread; it means bread that gives life. Jesus proclaims that he is the Bread of Life in the manner of wisdom in the Old Testament. In doing so, Jesus spells out what belief in him will mean to the crowd and to us.
Fr Paul says, like yesterday, we are again challenged to reflect that ultimately, we are called to believe.
