Gnawing Our Lord

Our Gospel readings are still in the Bread of Life discourse. This week's installment was John 6:51-58.1

After two millennia, what our Lord said may have lost some shock value:
"Whoever eats 19 my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day."
(John 6:54)
On the other hand, last year someone asked me if I realized that Catholics are cannibals. We are, sort of: but it wasn't our idea. (June 22, 2014)

Bread, Gnawing, and Choices


Quite a few Christians sidestep this bit of the Gospel, but I can't.
