"No one can come to me unless he is drawn by the Father who sent me." This opening line of today's gospel tells us so much about Christian life; the Father begins the whole process of salvation. He sends Jesus as saviour and continues to work in each of us making us in such a way that each of us feels drawn to Jesus. We can reject this "being drawn" or we can accept it, but we cannot be neutral to it. If we accept it and believe in Jesus we have eternal life, if we refuse it, we condemn ourselves. Once we begin to understand that Jesus is God the Eucharist becomes the food that sustains this belief and sustains us through the trials of life. Jesus says in this passage, "I am the bread of life....I am the living bread...anyone who eats this bread shall live forever." Nothing could be more simple or direct than this. Yet we don't take it serious, we miss the point, the cares of this world seem to stick their nose in and we loose focus. Its a pity we don't focus enough on these words; they are such a blessing!
