1834.1AFC082618-John6Summary

Aloha nui loa, ʻŌmea! Today’s Gospel once again comes from the Gospel of John, Chapter 6. It is a continuation of what we have been studying for five consecutive Sundays, from the 17th to the 21st Sundays in Ordinary Time. When we celebrated the Feast of Corpus Christi back in June, we cited passages from this chapter. John introduces The Church to Jesus’ teaching that his flesh is True Food and his Blood is True Drink. I’d like to share the post from that weekend with you again today as we reflect on the last portion of this amazing chapter. In the Old Testament reading, all of Israel affirms with Joshua that they will serve the LORD. In today’s Gospel, many are scandalized by Jesus’ words and fall away. They take offense at his teaching. Today, many are scandalized by Jesus’ teaching still, but even more are scandalized by what those who claim to be Disciples have done. We join The Church in praying for those who have misused the Gospel and tha authority of the church in ways that bring scandal. Here is a link to the lesson from Corpus Christ, and als a link to John, Chapter 6.
