    Jesus came to us in the circumstances He did to demonstrate His ardent love for us. He did so to experience life in all its difficulties and sorrows that we might know for a fact that we have a Mediator who understands what we go through in life. He also shows us the way to live, and how with Him, there is hope to be had in this world: a hope that is sustainable, a hope that can carry us through great trials and hardships.

    Life is filled with its ups and downs, yet sometimes life can get so much that we end up getting stuck in the lows... so much so that we try to escape from our problems. Jesus in the Gospel today tells us that this is not the answer. His words not only challenge us but makes us aware of who we are and how we are able to overcome the difficulties in life that weigh us down.

    God promised to make the deaf hear, the blind see, the lame dance. Jesus did that in fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies. But because He wants to bring hope and joy into the world, He has gifted us with the ability to see such miracles firsthand. We must walk in faith, cultivate humility, and always be persistent.

  • 21st Sunday in Ordinary Time B

    August 22nd, 2021  |  20 mins 8 secs

    Jesus is the Bread of Life... this Bread is His Flesh and the drink He offers is His Blood. Dissenters from these words of Jesus would make the claim that because Jesus also said that the Spirit is that which gives life and the flesh is of no avail, that Jesus only means to nourish us with His words. He certainly does so, but He also intends to feed us with His very self. Our desire to seek out Jesus in the Holy Eucharist should cause us to make excuses just to see Him who gives Himself to us for eternal life.
