Jesus, in this Sunday’s gospel reading, challenges His listeners by telling them that theymust eat His Body and drink His Blood!To the Jews this was insane!

It’s hard to decide: rye, wheat, French, Italian, raisin, oatmeal, and more.There is only one Bread of Life, however, Jesus…

Weekends, particularly Sundays, are days for rest, but a lot of people are so busy 24/7 that neither Sundays nor weekdays make any difference.

The Things that Weigh us Down If you have travelled anywhere, by car or train or airplane, you probably spent time trying to decide what to bring and what to leave behind.
