GOD’S WORD TODAY
“This is enough, O Lord!” How often has even the most dedicated believer echoed Elijah’s cry of despair, heard
in today’s first reading? Elijah was frustrated and exhausted because the people refused to heed his prophetic
words. We are all aware of friends or relatives who seem to have more than their share of misfortune. Perhaps
we may be experiencing severe hardships as we come to Mass today. If this is the case, then we are in the
right place. It is here that we, like Elijah, can find food that will sustain us, even when all life seems to offer us
is frustration and misfortune. Jesus promises us today that he is the living bread. Let us be strengthened by
the living bread that is God’s word. From Saint Margaret Sunday Missal, copyright © J. S. Paluch Company

THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING
Everyone recognizes the truth of good proverbs,
and so they endure from generation to generation.
The Russians have a surprisingly bold one that fits
this Sunday’s Gospel: “Bread is the beginning of everything.”
Judging from the first reading, Elijah might have
felt that it was too late for bread—too late for life
itself. This great prophet was at the end of his rope
and endurance. Then, not one, but two angels visit
him. One offers food and drink. The other gives startling directions. For Elijah, this food from the angels
is bread for his journey. On the strength of the heaven‑sent gift of food, he walks to the mountain of
God.
In today’s Gospel, Jesus offers himself, not just
as bread for the journey, but as bread for life itself.
He gives his flesh as life for the world. “I am the
bread of life” (John 6:48). He is the beginning of
everything. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION
In an age given to slogan T-shirts, one of the
last bastions of “dressing up” is the wedding. Everyone seems to stretch toward the old ideal of “Sunday
best” for these moments. In our tradition, clothing is
immensely important. Coming out of the baptismal
water, we are immediately vested with a white garment. “You have clothed yourself in Christ,” the new
Christian is told, and a white garment is the token of
being born into God’s family. Sadly, this is the last
time most Christians wear this garb until their funeral, when the family spreads a pall as a reminder of of
baptismal identity.
Increasingly today, we are seeing the alb as the
proper garb for liturgical ministers, men and women.
In ancient Rome, sleeveless tunics of varying colors
were worn by everyone, and so at baptism the new
Christians could be expected to wear their new garb
under their everyday clothes. Sleeves were a problem for ancient Romans, who thought they were a
barbarian fashion. As is so often the case, eventually
the barbarians won the day, and by the third century
the long-sleeved garment worn by ministers today
was familiar liturgical garb.

Yo soy el pan vivo que
ha bajada del cielo.
— Juan 6:51
LECTURAS DE HOY
Primera lectura — Después de descansar y alimentarse nuevamente dos veces, Elías se fortalece
para caminar a la montaña de Dios, el monte Horeb
(1 Reyes 19:4-8).
Salmo — Haz la prueba y verás qué bueno es el
Señor (Salmo 34 [33]).
Segunda lectura — Han sido marcados por el Espíritu Santo de Dios para que imiten a Dios (Efesios
4:30 — 5:2).
Evangelio — Jesús profesa que él es el pan de vida
y todo el que coma ese pan vivirá para siempre
(Juan 6:41-51).
EL COMIENZO DE TODO
Todo el mundo reconoce la verdad de los buenos proverbios, y por eso perduran de generación
en generación. Los rusos tienen uno sorprendentemente audaz que le pega al Evangelio de este domingo: “El pan es el comienzo de todo”.
De acuerdo a la primera lectura, puede ser que
Elías sintiera que era demasiado tarde para ser pan
–demasiado tarde para la vida misma. Este gran
profeta estaba ya al final de sus fuerzas y de su
aguante. Entonces no uno, sino dos ángeles lo visitan. Uno le ofrece comida y bebida. El otro le da
unas sorprendentes instrucciones. Para Elías esta
comida de los ángeles es pan para su camino. Fortalecido por este regalo celestial de comida, él sigue
su camino a la montaña de Dios.
En el Evangelio de hoy, Jesús se ofrece a sí
mismo, no sólo como pan para el camino, sino como
pan para la vida misma. Él da su carne para dar vida
al mundo. “Yo soy el pan de vida” (Juan 6:48). Él es
el comienzo de todo. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.

TRADICIONES DE NUESTRA FE
Durante los últimos años, la Iglesia católica en
los Estados Unidos de América ha reconocido un poco más la presencia hispana. Por tal motivo, muchos
músicos han compuesto cantos bilingües, en inglés y
español. Por ejemplo, el cantautor Bob Hurd, quien
escribió el canto: “Pan de vida, cuerpo del Señor”.
Este himno, basado en Gálatas 2:3 y Juan 6:35,
mezcla el español con el inglés para hablar de que
todos somos uno en el cuerpo del Señor. No hay raza, género humano o condición social que sea mejor
o peor que la otra. En Cristo todos podemos estar
unidos en servicio mutuo, amor y humildad. Para la
jerarquía de la Iglesia católica en Estados Unidos,
este mensaje es de suma importancia porque a
veces le cuesta trabajo compartir su liderazgo con
los que no son angloparlantes. Como comunidad hispana, nos corresponde desafiar con amor a la Iglesia
jerárquica de este país para que sea más fiel al pan
de vida, hecho de múltiples granos de trigo, cada
uno de valor inestimable ante los ojos de Dios.

“We learn many virtues in our Christian families. Above all, we learn to love, asking nothing in return.”
“En una familia cristiana aprendemos muchas virtudes. Sobre todo a amar sin pedir nada a cambio.”
Papa Francisco
Vatican City, 31 July 2015 (VIS) – The Holy Father's universal prayer intention for August is:
“That volunteers may give themselves generously to the service of the needy”.
His intention for evangelisation is: “That setting aside our very selves we may learn to be neighbours to
those who find themselves on the margins of human life and society”.
World Meeting of Families
In preparation for the 2015 World Meeting of Families, the Archdiocese of
Philadelphia has prepared a catechetical resource, “Love is our Mission, The
Family Fully Alive,” published by Our Sunday Visitor.
“CREATED FOR JOY”
The first theme is “Created for Joy.” “Despite the ambiguities of human history, the
Catholic way of hope and joy, love and service grounds itself in an encounter with
Jesus.” (Paragraph 7, p. 16)
THINK about how you expr ess hope and joy and live love and ser vice because you
have encountered Jesus. Record your reflections in a journal and/or share it with others at
table or in a small group. “Christians are people who, having met Jesus in a variety of
ways – through the witness of the saints and the apostles, through Scripture and sacrament, prayer and service to the poor, in worship and through friends and family – are
able to trust Jesus, and who say with Peter, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living
God.” (Paragraph 8, p. 17)
PRAY for all those who helped you lear n about J esus thr ough teaching you the
faith, the example of their lives, their service to others and their participation in the life
and worship of the Church. “Catholic views on Marriage, family and sexuality belong to
a larger mission to live in a way that makes God’s love visible and radiant; to live this
mission makes everyday life alive with God’s joy.” (Paragraph 19, p. 22)
ACT towar d other s with the love and joy God has placed within you from the
moment you were conceived in his “image and likeness.”
