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)
