Twentieth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Bread 3“The one who feeds on me will have life because of me.”   (John 6, 51-58)



Simple things You choose Lord,

Wine and bread to cloak a sublime reality.

Ordinary components of any meal,

Easily accessible to all.

Appearances to draw us to this repast

Of eternal life.

Divine viands in which You assimilate us,

Divinize us, transform us.

Yes, we feed on You,

Have life because of You.

Our faith it stretched to its extreme limit

As we acknowledge Your holy presence

In these common forms.

Yet, you have said it,

And that is enough for us,

For we know You are trustworthy.

Increase our gratitude,

Our appreciation

Of so great a Gift,

Of such proof of Your Love,

Of Your desire to be with us

Intimately and always.
