Reading for Sunday: John 6:24-35
Bread of the earth brings hunger again—but not Jesus, the Bread of Heaven. Receive in faith. For St. John, “to believe,” means, “to adhere to Jesus.” If you cling to Jesus on the cross, he will draw you up in resurrection.
For the Fourth Evangelist, “the last day” is Good Friday, the sixth day of the old creation. Then there is the Sabbath, followed by the first day of the week of the new creation, Resurrection Sunday.
Dwell on this immense fact: Christ calls you to live in a New Creation. All the “old stuff” that tends to stick like glue to your spirit, has really died and lost its power. Do not give any more power to what is already dead!
