Life is much more important than food, and the body much more important than clothes. Instead, be concerned with His Kingdom, and He will provide you with these things.
Luke 12:23,31

Sunday Gospel Message - 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

God gave the Israelites manna in the desert and took
care of them each day. This gift from God would be a
foreshadowing of the special gift that Jesus would give us in
the Eucharist. Jesus, the Son of God, promised that He
would give the bread that would give life to the world. Jesus
foretold that He would be the “bread of life; whoever comes
to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will
never thirst.”
The Israelites asked the question about the manna.
Moses responded that it was the bread that the Lord had
given them to eat. If we asked that same question, Jesus
would tell us that this is the bread that He has given us to
eat. We ask that the Lord to help us realize what a
tremendous gift that Jesus has given us in the Eucharist.
