+ Thursday: John 6:1-40 +
[verse 35] He said to them “I am the bread of life” to rebuke them, because when they thought that the food was ordinary, they rushed to Him, but not when they learned that it was of a spiritual kind.
+ Saint John Chrysostom
[verse 36] You demand bread from heaven. This bread is before you and you do not want to eat. “But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe.”
+ Saint Augustine
We pray so much for health, success and guidance in earthly matters, but do I with such desperation and excitement seek heavenly matters? What can I add to my daily prayers about this?
