Bulletin


Earth“… work for food that endures to eternal life.”   (Jn. 6:27)

 

The issuance of Pope Francis’ recent encyclical falls harmoniusly with the Gospel passages presented in the Sunday liturgies of this month.  The letter “Laudato Si” agitates, wows, and challenges most everyone.  So, too, do this August’s Gospel passages, in which we are reminded of Jesus’ teachings on the bread of life – bread which ever satisfies, which is given freely to us, and which is broken for all to share.  It seems fitting, therefore, to ponder on the challenge of a new lifestyle, a new attitude that will foster the partaking of bread for all.
