Gospel Reading for April 15, 2024 – John 6: 22-29

WE CANNOT LIVE FOREVER

[After Jesus had fed the five thousand men, his disciples saw him walking on the sea.] The next day, the crowd that remained across the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not gone along with his disciples in the boat, but only his disciples had left. Other boats came from Tiberias near the place where they had eaten the bread when the Lord gave thanks. When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into boats and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. And when they found him across the sea they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” Jesus answered them and said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him the Father, God, has set his seal.” So they said to him, “What can we do to accomplish the works of God?” Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.”

————
Imagine Jesus having to put up with having celebrity status. People were always following him, and a lot of them not because of his preaching, but because he was able to multiply the loaves and filled their stomachs. It’s true, food is of utmost importance in order for us to sustain our life, but if our life depended only on food for the stomach and not also food for our spirit, then, WE CANNOT LIVE FOREVER.

What would make us different from animals, whose main concern is food, space and mate?

Lord, may we always seek you, the Bread of Life!
