August 16, 2009 Twentieth Ordinary Sunday Page ThirteenIn the Gospel passage on this Twentieth Sunday inOrdinary Time, we hear more of Jesus’ Bread of Life discourse,which is found in the sixth chapter of the Gospel of John. It’snot terribly long‐‐about one and a half pages of text in my paperbackNew American Bible for Catholics‐‐but it covers a lotof ground, and perhaps because of this, the Church, via thereadings of the day, presents it to us in parts. Two weeks agowe heard the beginning of the discourse. Last week, roughlythe middle, and this week and next, the finish. Given the significanceof the subject matter, let’s look back at it together, just tosee how Jesus, John, and the Church has laid it down thus far…Two weeks ago, when the crowd left twelve baskets ofleftovers to follow Jesus, he responds, “Amen, amen, I say toyou, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but becauseyou ate the loaves and were filled.” Then he adds somethingthat sets up the entire remainder of the Bread of Life discourse:“Do not work for food that perishes but for the foodthat endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will giveyou.” Mysterious. The crowd reminds Jesus that Moses gavetheir ancestors bread from heaven to eat. Jesus responds thatthe bread didn’t come from Moses, but from the Father, andthen says: “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me willnever hunger…”Last week’s Gospel began with the Jews murmuring,“Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph? Do we not know hismother and father?” Jesus chides them, saying, “Everyone whoSupport StaffMrs. Dorota Gołda, Parish SecretarySr. Bernadetta Gościniak, Administrative AssistantLiturgicalMrs. Betty Hotcaveg, Lector CoordinatorDeacon Irv Hotcaveg, Coordinator of Eucharistic Ministers &Ministers of CareMs. Jane Lohrmann, Scheduler of Ministers of Care to the HomeboundParish CouncilMr. Ralph Barnhart-President, Mrs. Mary Bucaro, Mr. GilbertDeJesus, Mrs. Sophie Kass, Mr. Stan Mastalerz, Mr. AntonioSupan, Violet Del Vacchio.

Reynolds ( Ferdinand Parishlistens to my Father and learns from him comes to me…Amen,amen, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life.” He thenrepeats, “I am the bread of life,” and adds, “Your ancestors atethe manna in the desert, but they died; this is the bread thatcomes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die”before delivering the knock‐out punch: “I am the living breadthat came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will livefor ever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life ofthe word.”For emphasis, I suppose, the Church, begins today’sGospel by repeating the verse. A difficult message, it sets thecrowd off even more, but Christ keeps going: “Amen, amen, Isay to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drinkhis blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats myflesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise himon the last day.” Jesus then reiterates the point and finisheswith, “This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlikeyour ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this breadwill live forever.” Our belief in the Bread of Life discourse absolutelydefines us as Catholic Christians, but has it all becometoo routine? I heard a priest on Relevant Radio the other daysay that one of the biggest fears of priests in general is takingthe sacred for granted, of losing the wonder and awe. May weinternalize the precise same fear, and the next time we hear thewords of the Consecration, may we all focus on what exactly ishappening up there.THE ENDLegion of Mary: Mr. Thomas Sobczak &Miss Aurora Almeida, Co-PresidentsLegion of Mary, Juniors: Mrs. Emma Camara, PresidentIrving Park Catholic Woman’s Club: Mrs. Dolores SchoeweMarket Day: Mrs. Connie Glorioso, CoordinatorPol. & Eng.
