 THE MIRACLE OF THE EUCHARIST (today’s Gospel)

Their problem was NOT physical HUNGER but spiritual STARVATION.

Yes, bread gives life but “Your fathers are dead’”

“I AM THE LIVING BREAD FROM HEAVEN AND I GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE.”

The Eucharist is REAL FOOD for our JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE

 

FORGIVE EACH OTHER” (St Paul, 2nd reading)

“Never have grudges against others, or lose your temper or raise your voice to anybody, or call each other names, or allow any sort of spitefulness. Be friends with one another and kind, forgiving each other as readily as God forgives you in Christ” 

Paul himself had hunted down and execute Christians.

He was violently committed to the extinction of the first Christians,

But NOW he is overwhelmed that God not only FORGAVE him but chose him as his AMBASSADOR

 

GOD IS A PROFRSSIONAL FORGIVER - HE’S HAD LOTS OF PRACTICE!

So go now and You do the same!

“If the FORGIVING JESUS stands before US, it becomes more

difficult to refuse forgiveness to those who have hurt us

                                       

AND THE FUNNIES - a bumper holiday edition?

 Whatever women do, they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily this is not difficult!!

      (A parishioner talking to the Parish Priest).

When a King rules, his wife is the Queen, but when a Queen is ruler, her       husband is a Prince! And they talk about equality between the sexes.

 All Men are born equal then they get married.

The young couple were discussing their approaching marriage. "I'm not         having any of this women's lib stuff," says the

            fiancé "I am going to be the  boss and you'll do as I say". Then he added "Is that alright with you ,love?"

 The trouble with some women is that they get excited about nothing and        then they marry him!!!!

 My grandma started walking 5 miles a day when she was 60. She's 93 today and we don't know where the hell she is!!!

 NOTICE OUTSIDE HOSPITAL: "Beware - Guard dogs operating"!!!!

 

And a real gem to end!

I dreamt Death came over the other night, and Heaven's gate swung wide. An angel with a halo bright ushered me inside And there to my astonishment were folks I'd judged and labelled as "quite unfit", "of little worth" and "spiritually disabled." Indignant words rose to my lips but never were set free, for every face showed stunned surprise - no one had expected me!!!!!

Happy Holidays
