19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 12 Aug 2012

Click here to download and listen to this homily (16 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at the Shrine of St Therese near Juneau, Alaska. Today we continue through the Bread of Life discourse in John's 6th Chapter. Jesus teaches that he is the living bread come down from heaven just like the manna in the desert and the Torah given on Mount Sinai. We cannot remain under our broom trees of despair. We must get up and eat of the Bread of Life in Word and Sacrament and be strengthened for the journey.

Readings: 1 Kings 19:4-8; Psalm 34; Ephesians 4:30-5:2; John 6:41-51
