Father Csaba’s reflection on the gospel 19th August 2018 …20th Sunday of Ordinary time
To Mary’s “yes” the second divine person, Jesus Christ became man, became incarnate in Bethlehem and came among us !! In the sacrifice of the mass to the priests’, worshipers’ “yes” , who gathered in the name of Christ , the same living God becomes the Holy Eucharist , becomes incarnate , comes among us !! We believe and profess that the same Divine person who addressed Abraham, Moses , like the One who came among us on the night of Christmas and the One who appears in every sacrifice of the mass is also present in the Holy Eucharist! One and the same infinite, living Love turns towards us His blessing, life-giving , kind-hearted face , to which , like the faithful of all times with living faith, we adoringly and joyfully answer our God !!
Professing the great mystery of incarnation,
translated by dr e.k.
I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh." The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" So Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever."
