18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted on Updated on

Readings: Exodus 16: 2-4, 12-15; Ephesians 4:17, 20-24; John 6:24-25

Originally delivered on August 4, 1991

Today we are called to abandon our practical living and to believe and trust in God. In the first reading, we hear about Moses and manna in the desert.  In the Gospel, Jesus says that He is the bread of life.  Fr. Healy passionately preaches that we, as followers of Jesus, must have faith in God and share our treasures, whatever those may be, with our needy sisters and brothers. We are called to be radical, even revolutionary, from the order that is in place if we are to create a just world.
