Reflection on the 19th Sunday of Ordinary Time

1 Kings 19: 4-8Strengthened by the food he walked until he reached the mountain of God

Psalm 33Taste and see that the Lord is good

Ephesians 4:30– 5:2Follow Christ by loving as he loved you

John 6: 41-51I am the living bread which has come down from Heaven

REFLECTION:

The Church has been giving us meditations on the Eucharist for the past few weeks. It finds parallels in the Old Testament and thus teaches us the continuity between God feeding His people through miraculous food and Jesus feeding us with the miraculous food of Himself. As we receive Him we are given food for our journey that we too might “reach the mountain of God”. Let us not deliberately starve ourselves of the Bread of Heaven!
