Gospel Reflection for August 19, 2012, 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

 Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.

John 6.53

Eucharist feeds a kingdom-building church that erupts with breathtaking force when the same food touches and fuels many together at once.  Eucharist is an act of solidarity with Jesus and with each other.  There is no Eucharist served at a table for one.  Since the time of Jesus, there is no longer any true God who can be gotten at and loved apart from loving the human family.

How does joining in Eucharist give you life?
