GOSPEL  REFLECTION – In today’s Gospel, Jesus does not conform to his followers’ expectations. His teachings are too difficult for some. They are annoyed and offended. ‘This is intolerable language,’ they grumble, ‘How could anyone accept it?’ Though they were happy to accept his healings and miraculous feeding, they find his claims about eternal life confusing and upsetting. Jesus demands a lot of his followers, who must each decide whether or not they want to follow him. It’s a free choice
