Reflection: If the crowd last week thought that the words of Jesus were too much, wait until they hear what he has to say to them and us this week! The gospel begins where last week’s gospel ended; ‘I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh for the life of the world.’ Jesus then describes the relationship between the Father and himself, and his followers. Jesus has life because of the Father. Those who eat the bread that he shall give will live forever; in other words, those who ‘feed’ on Jesus will have eternal life. He raises the stakes even higher when he says, ‘your ancestors ate the mana in desert (but) they are dead.’ He is claiming to be the living bread which has down from heaven! As he has life because of the Father, the followers of Jesus have life because of him! When he says this, the anger, the complaining and objections start.

In a word, what Jesus is talking about is relationship. When we celebrate the Eucharist and gather around the table of the Lord, we are entering into a sacred, personal and intimate relationship with Jesus himself and each other. As we share in the Bread of Life that is Jesus, we are also experiencing the love and life of God the Father which he enjoys. Through the Body and Blood of Jesus that we share in, we become the Body of Christ with and for each other. (Michael Moore OMI)

Reflection: We all love a good meal. We look forward to any meal, specially if it is one that celebrates a special occasion or event. People gather, there is food and drink; there may be singing dancing; stories are told and memories are created. Meals bring people together.

Meals, food and celebrating are a central theme and message of readings this Sunday. We are told that Elisha, a man of God, is brought bread, the first fruits, twenty barely loaves and fresh grain.’ On receiving all this food, he asks that it is given away to feed the people. But those with him asked how such little food will feed so many people. Again he insists that the food is share out saying, ‘the Lord says this, they will eat and some left over.’ The food was served, everyone had plenty to eat and there was food left over.

This scene is repeated in the gospel. After Jesus has spoken to the people and healed those who were sick; Jesus asked his disciples to feed the crowd. They said that it would cost far too much to feed to such a large crowd. But Andrew said that there was a boy who had a five loaves of bread and two fish with him. But again the disciples questioned how such little food would feed so many. Jesus took the food, blest it, gave thanks to God for it and shared it out so that everyone present had more than enough to eat. This miracle shows us the generosity, bountifulness of God. As the Psalm Twenty Three reminds us; the Lord is my shepherd, there is nothing I shall want… the Lord has prepare a banquet for me..’

When we gather to celebrate the Eucharist with each other, we experience the love and generosity that God has for each of us. We present God with simple and ordinary bread and wine. God accepts, blesses them and through the power of the Holy Spirit they are changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus. Then they are freely given back to us by God to feed, nourish and strengthen us.

This week, let us offer God our lives so that we too will changed and transformed in ways we can’t even imagine. (Michael Moore OMI)
