Readings for the Week
6/18/2017 - 6/25/2017
Readings for Sunday, June 18:
Dt 8:2-3,14b-16a: Moses reminds the Israelites that although God let them hunger, still He fed them with manna, a food unknown. He brought them out of slavery of Egypt and cared for them.
1 Cor 10:16-17: In the One bread and sharing the One cup, we are united in the Body and Blood of Jesus. We, though many, are still One body in Jesus.
Jn 6:51-58: Jesus speaks of His Body and Blood in the Holy Eucharist. Whoever receives the Holy Eucharist will be raised up on the last day; whoever eats this bread will live forever.
Today’s Message - The cup we share, is it not the Blood of Christ? And the bread we break is it not His Body? Just as God fed the Israelites with manna from heaven, so too, do we feed on the best of wheat, the bread of angels, food for the pilgrim journey.
