Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time

John 6:60-69

If your understanding of Catholicism is a philosophy that you must accept, you will probably walk away. If you only see Catholicism as a theory to which we must give allegiance, you will undoubtedly leave. If for you Catholicism is something that is arrived at intellectually, there is no reason to stay. But if you can appreciate Catholicism, as a personal response to a loving God incarnate in Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist, the Bread of Life, your response will be the same as that of the apostles -“To whom else shall we go, you have the words of everlasting life?”
