About Today Readings

Acts 7:51- 8:1. Psalm 30(31):3-4, 6-8, 17, 21. John 6:30-35.

Into your hands, O Lord, I entrust my spirit—Psalm 30(31):3-4, 6-8, 17, 21.

The bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.

They said to him, ‘Sir, give us this bread.’ We can all remember situations where all we do is ask questions—why? where? when? how? in bursts of rage, frustration, tiredness and exhaustion. There appear to be no conclusive answers. We appear not to have been heard. We ask our questions again. Still not the answers we are looking for. Then we just sit in our despair. We throw our hands up in the air in defeat.

It is then that we can truly seek what it is in our hearts and lives that is missing. It is then that we can ask some specific and heartfelt questions. Most important, like the crowd of people asking Jesus lots of questions, it is then that we can truly listen to Jesus and desire more of what he can offer us.
