Bread of Life

August 2, 2015

This week, the Church

s Gospel is again taken from the sixth chapter of the Gospel of John. The principle concern of this Gospel is to provide testimony to the enduring presence of Christ in the Eucharist—a presence which is the fulfillment of

the ancient temple of Israel. The ark of the covenant contained the law of God and the manna from heaven, and was surrounded by the



” or 

bread of the presence.

 Now, in the true tabernacles found in our churches, we find


living law, the true manna, and the


bread of the presence.
