Unending Presence of God
In high school seminary, as a punishment, I was required to write in long hand the sixth chapter of John's Gospel. I have long forgotten what I was being punished for, but I have never forgotten John, chapter 6.
At Mass we began reading from it last Sunday and will continue using it as the Sunday Gospel for four more weeks. In the first half of what Jesus has to say, he is talking about himself as the bread of God "who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. (6:33)" Jesus promises that faith in himself enables us to live now in the unending presence of God.
