Gospel Reflection: The Bread of Life

Here’s a reflection on John 6, where Jesus describes himself as the Bread of Life.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Gospel Reflection
(inspired by John 6)

Much more of soft bread
   much-loved by the world
   and sweet on the tongue
and we shall be dead.

Much more of this bread
   fresh from the baking
   and scenting the air
and we shall be dead.

Much more of this bread
   though it come to us
   packaged and sliced
and we shall be dead.

Yet a crust of Christ’s bread
   with the meek and poor
   who dare to adore
and death is no more.
