GOSPEL  REFLECTION

Over the past few Sunday Gospels, Jesus has been speaking a lot about bread. His followers have known hunger, and the feeding of the five thousand proved to them that Jesus was someone who knew how to feed their hunger.
But they find it difficult to make the leap of faith required when he starts to talk to them about being the living bread. It is not as easy to spot the signs of spiritual hunger.
