01 August 21 – Sunday 18B (COCU 50B)

(John 6:24-35)
Jesus, Bread of life,
reveals God’s love most clearly,
born as one of us.

One who did good works
and called those who would follow
to believe in him.

One by whom we live
(not satisfied but sustained),
this Bread of heaven.

This strange metaphor
has pre-Christian origins
yet still somehow works:

“You are invited!”
to life in all its fullness,
the way of Jesus.
