Lord, To Whom Shall We Go?

August 26, 2018

In today

s Gospel, we see Jesus

followers reacting to his shocking teaching about eating his flesh and drinking his blood by saying,

This is a hard saying; who can accept it?

To understand Jesus

meaning, we must understand that he

s not using symbolic or metaphorical language. He

s speaking words of

Spirit and life

which bring into being precisely what they signal.
