Deuteronomy 8:2-3, 14b-16a; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; John 6:51-58. In Deuteronomy, Moses reminds the people of how God brought them out of Egypt and through 40 years in the desert. Saint Paul writes of our unity as Christians, for we all partake of the one loaf. Jesus tells the Jewish crowds that he is the living bread that came down from heaven so that eternal life may be found though Him.
Corpo e Sangue Di Cristo
Durante la vita, anche noi abbiamo bisogno dal cielo, dà la vita, crea un rapporto di communione tra tutti I credenti, mentre assicura la risurrezione finale. Anche per il mondo l’Eucaristia è segno e strumento di salvezza eterna.
讀經二給我們展開另一個境界，聖體也使弟兄們彼此團結。「因為餅祇有一個， 我們雖多，祇是一個身體，因為我們眾人共享一個餅。」而聖體祇有一個，就是基督的身體，我們領了聖體，與基督共融，有着基督的血和肉，大家都是祂的肢體。 為此，我們要團結一致。
From Fr. Gael: Moses in his farewell speech in Deuteronomy reminds the Israelites of how they were fed manna in the desert. It became their daily bread. It was their sustenance. It guaranteed them survival. Paul in his words to the Corinthians reminds them, “The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ?” Jesus in the Gospel of John declares to his listeners, “This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.”
All the readings are centered on the “Body and Blood of Jesus Christ” which today’s liturgy celebrates. It is the wisdom of the Church which prompts us to remember this reality. Familiarity breeds contempt, the saying goes. As regards the Eucharist, however, we might change the saying a bit, “familiarity breeds indifference.” What a tragedy! That we should be indifferent to the depth of the gift of the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Jesus is astounding.. He died out of sheer love for us. How can we become too accustomed to that great reality? May the love of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ be ever in our hearts! –Fr. Gael Sullivan, SDB

Monthly Gatherings for Men Discerning a Priestly Vocation: These are discontinued for now, but the email address are valid for those men who are interested: Our Lord told Peter and the others that they are to be Fishers of Men! “Interested in knowing more about the priesthood as a vocation? Discernment involves listening to God, learning about yourself, and seeking the guidance of others. Discernment is not a solitary endeavor. There are two options: In Redwood City on the first Monday of each month, from 6:15 – 8:30PM at St. Pius X Church, 1100 Woodside Rd. Redwood City; In San Francisco on the first Thursday of each month, from 6:15 – 8:30PM at Church of the Epiphany, 826 Vienna Street, San Francisco. The program is Eucharistic Adoration in the church, followed by dinner and discussion in the rectory. For more information, Fr. Tom Martin at email@example.com or Fr. Patrick Summerhays at firstname.lastname@example.org “We need men to give their lives up for Jesus Christ NOW!
Speaking of Vocations: Could God be Calling Me? YES! God calls each of us to life, to wholeness, and to service. The task of the young adult is to discern what path God wants him or her to follow.
The Lord calls most people to marriage and family. For the Christian young adult this is a very important decision. Choosing to marry is not just a romantic response, but also a very specific process that includes prayer, investigation, involvement, and experience.
God calls some people to religious life as a Sister, Brother, or Priest. A religious vocation follows the same process. We call this the discernment process. Want to learn more about the Salesian Vocation? Email Fr. John Roche, SDB at email@example.com
