Prayer Chain: To place your request on the Prayer
Chain, please call the Parish Office or Charlene Herzig
The prophet Elijah flees for his life from King
Ahab and Queen Zezebel to protect his life.
His life as a prophet has been difficult. In
today’s text he is in the wilderness praying for
death. “Enough, O’ Lord! Take my life.” But
his mission is not complete, so God sends a
messenger to encourage him and strengthen him
for his mission. Nourished by the hearth cake
and water provided by the Lord, Elijah is now
ready to make the long journey of forty days
and forty nights and he arrives at “the mountain
of God, Horeb,” better known as Mount Sinai,
where he will encounter the Lord. The crowds
murmur in response to Jesus’ declaration that
He is “the bread that comes down from heaven.”
How can He have come from heaven they ask, if
“we...know his father and mother?” Throughout
this exchange, the hostility the crowd has for
Jesus intensifies. His words are hard for them to
accept. Like their ancestors who “ate the manna
in the desert,” they too reject the one sent by
God. Still, Jesus promises, “Whoever eats this
bread will live forever.” We and the evangelist’s
audience know there is a deeper meaning to the
words. In Ephesians today, we are encouraged
to live the new life we have been given by God.
This means, we should avoid “bitterness, fury,
anger, shouting...reviling...and malice.” Instead
we are “to be kind to one another, compassionate,
and forgiving.” In other words, as our author
commands us, “Be imitators of God...and live in
For reflection: In what ways does God encourage
me as I strive to live out my faith? Do I have
negative qualities in my life that need to be
removed in order to better live the life God gives?

El profeta Elías huye para salvar su vida del rey Acab
y la reina Jezabel para proteger su vida. Su vida como
profeta ha sido difícil. En el texto de hoy que está en el
desierto orando por la muerte, “Basta ya, OH SEÑOR!
Quítame la vida.” Pero su misión no es completa,
por lo que Dios envía un mensajero para animarlo y
fortalecerlo para su misión. Alimentado por un pan
cocido y un jarro de agua proporcionado por el Señor,
Elías ya está listo para hacer el largo viaje de “cuarenta
días y cuarenta noches,” y llegar a “la montaña de Dios,
el Horeb,” más conocido como el Monte Sinaí, donde se
encontrará con el Señor.
Las multitudes murmuran en respuesta a la declaración
de Jesús de que él es “el pan que ha bajado del cielo”.
¿Cómo puede haber venido del cielo, se preguntan, si
“... conocemos a su padre y a su madre?” A lo largo de
este intercambio, la hostilidad de la multitud tiene para
Jesús multiplicar. Sus palabras son difíciles para ellos
aceptar. Al igual que sus antepasados que “comieron el
maná en el desierto,” ellos también rechazan el enviado
por Dios. Sin embargo, Jesús promete, “el que come de
este pan vivirá para siempre.” Nosotros y el pueblo del
evangelizador sabemos que hay un significado más
profundo a las palabras.
En Efesios hoy se nos anima a vivir la nueva vida que
nos han dado por Dios. Esto significa que debemos
evitar “rencor, furia, ira, gritos,... (y) la maldad.”
En su lugar debemos “ser amables unos con otros,
compasivo, (y) que perdona.” En otras palabras, como
nuestro autor nos ordena: “Sed imitadores de Dios,...y
vivir en el amor.”
Para reflexionar: ¿De qué manera Dios me anima?
¿Cómo me esfuerzo por vivir mi fe? ¿Tengo cualidades
negativas en mi vida que necesitan ser removidos
con el fin de una vida mejor como la vida que Dios nos
