Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time ~ August 12

Elijah was ready to give up, “This is enough O Lord. Take my life…”, but God would hear none of it: “Get up and eat…” In the beautiful Bread of Life discourse in the Gospel today, Jesus tells us that He is the Bread of Life “… whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world.” When tempted to give up and stop trying, remember that Jesus is here, each week, waiting to feed you with this Bread of Life. Get up and eat!
