Aug 23 – Homily – Fr Joachim: Importance of the Eucharist

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015
Click to Play

Homily #150823n ( 10min) Play – The subject for the past few Sundays has been John 6, which is all about the Eucharist and how essential is it in order to have the life of Christ within us. Father covers the whole chapter, and observes that many disciples left after this teaching (Father notes this verse is John 6:66), and many Christians still refuse to accept this teaching and its implications for our moral lives. Let us receive this hard teaching of Jesus with faith, saying with Peter, “Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
