The Catholic Eucharist in the Bible Part 2

This week’s Encountering the Word video for the Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time focuses on the Bread of Life discourse found in John 6. What if Jesus’ words and the Church teaching on the Eucharist are true? What if that really is God? Jeff Cavins encourages us to reflect on the simplicity of Christ’s words in this week’s Gospel. The readings are:

First Reading: 1 Kings 19:4-8
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 34:2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9
Second Reading: Ephesians 4:30—5:2
Alleluia: John 6:5
Gospel: John 6:41-51
