Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 15, A.D. 2005

Acts 9:1-20
Psalm 117:1-2
John 6:52-59

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

"You do not have life within you. . ."

In the year of the Eucharist, this is a tremendously important passage. It is one of those passages that make tremendous difficulties for our fundamentalist brethren who insist upon literal interpretation of the Bible until they get to this passage.

This is one of those passages we can go to time and again to remind us, Christ's flesh is real food, Christ's blood is real drink and they are confected in the Eucharist by a validly ordained priest.

All of John 6 is wonderful, but this passage and related passages around it make this profoundly good spiritual reading for every day of this year dedicated to the Eucharist.
