Gospel Reflection for August 5, 2012, 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never hungry, and whoever believes in my will never be thirsty.

John 6.35

 When Jesus sat at a table with his friends 2,000 years ago, he had little more to say to them than what he had been trying to say through the whole witness of his life: “Here I am, like this bread and this cup—take it, let me be broken and poured out for you, so that the kingdom may come.”

This sacrifice remembers the one who could have chosen to be high and mighty in this world, but instead chose to identify with the little ones; the ones who could have used his own experience of injustice as an excuse to become hardened and vindictive, but did not.
Share an example of your own courage to show love rather than retaliate.
