Reflection for 25 July

Reflection for 25 July 2021

Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Deacon John Bird

What is truly happening here?  Jn. 6:1-15

Our life each and every day is dependent on the food we eat.  Jesus prepares for us the spiritual food we will need to nourish our spiritual life in preparation for eternal life with Jesus.  Without Jesus Christ in our lives, we are hungry and starving; something is missing, and our lives are empty.  After giving thanks, he feeds all the people with 5 barley loaves of bread and 2 fish.  Consider this—the real miracle is the gift that happens at every sacrifice of the mass that is celebrated.  He gathers us to his mountain and feeds us with the Holy Eucharist.  This is what he was preparing us for, an understanding of how he would feed our souls, strengthening us for eternal life.  This is the beginning of a teaching that is difficult for Christians then and now.  His food will be the Holy Eucharist, his body and blood under the appearance of bread and wine.  To understand the Holy Eucharist, ask yourself these questions about today’s Gospel:

--Do you believe in Jesus’ Divine Authority?

--Do you believe Jesus knows our needs?

--Do you believe Jesus has an immense love for us?

“For my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink.”  (Jn. 6:55)

Do you truly believe?  Blessed are you.


Reflexión para el 25 de julio de 2021

17mo Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario

Deácono John Bird

¿Qué está sucediendo realmente aquí? Jn. 6:1-15

Nuestra vida todos los días depende de los alimentos que comemos. Jesús nos prepara para el alimento espiritual que necesitaremos para nutrir nuestra vida espiritual en preparación para la vida eterna con Jesús. Sin Jesucristo en nuestras vidas, estamos hambrientos; algo falta y nuestras vidas están vacías. Después de dar las gracias, Jesús alimenta a toda la gente con 5 panes y 2 peces. Considere esto: el verdadero milagro es el don que sucede en cada sacrificio de la misa que se celebra. Él nos reúne a su montaña y nos alimenta con la Santa Eucaristía. Esto es para lo que nos estaba preparando, una comprensión de cómo alimentaría nuestras almas, fortaleciéndonos para la vida eterna. Este es, desde el comienzo, una enseñanza que es difícil para los cristianos de entonces y ahora. Su alimento será la Santa Eucaristía, su cuerpo y sangre bajo la apariencia de pan y vino. Para entender la Santa Eucaristía, hágase estas preguntas que surgen del Evangelio de hoy: --¿Crees en la Autoridad Divina de Jesús? --¿Crees que Jesús conoce nuestras necesidades? --¿Crees que Jesús tiene un inmenso amor por nosotros? "Porque mi carne es verdadero alimento y mi sangre es verdadera bebida". (Jn. 6:55) ¿De verdad crees? Bienaventurados son ustedes.
