Have you ever heard something that sounded completely outlandish? The Jews in today's Gospel are not just shocked by Jesus' teaching, they are likely disgusted and offended. Is Jesus of Nazareth really telling them that He IS the Bread of Life, he is the fulfillment of all the Scriptures? He is the "New Passover"? This is scandalous to them. Often times, living our faith can cause scandal. It's radical for us to cling to the truths of the faith and to Christ in today's culture. Let's take some time to learn more about the Eucharist, the source and summit of our faith, today. Jesus knew we need physical signs, and so he gave us his very self, hidden under the appearances of bread and wine, to nourish us on our journey in this life.
