April 18 - John 6: 44-51

Fr. Michael MachacekNativity of Our LordApril 18, 2024

today's other readings are Acts 8: 26-40 and Psalm 66

Promises, promises, promises.  Some are given casually, but without thought.  Some are fragile.  Some are said but not really meant.  And others are made with sincere conviction and with complete truth.  

Jesus' promise today falls into that last category.  

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if any one eats of this bread, he will live for ever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.

Dear reader, now that's a promise you can bank on.
