Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: How many times has Jesus come to you in another person and you didn’t recognize him? This bulletin insert for the 21st Sunday of Ordinary Time recommends the practice of recognizing Jesus when he comes to us in others. Doing this will reveal the Eucharist in a new light. In John 6:60-69, we see the tragic rejection of Christ’s true mission by many who had been listening to him and watching him. How could they miss the message that he taught? “The words I have spoken are Spirit and life,” he said. But they only heard his words on the surface level, in their flesh-nature. And thus they missed the life that he was offering: the healed life, the joyful life, the victorious life, the eternal life.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for August 26, youth groups, parish staff meeting, SCCs, RCIA, etc.
