TWENTY FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
8-23-09 TWENTY FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
GOSPEL: JOHN 6:60-69
“To whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
Having too many choices is confusing. A simple cup of coffee is now a menu of double shot lattes or caramel macchiatos. For tea, don’t even go there unless you want a Berry Chai Tazo Tea Infusion. Television may offer 1,000 channels.
In today’s Gospel, Peter has no problem with choices. Jesus asks Peter, “Would you also like to leave?” There was only one option. There is only one answer. Peter says, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words that give eternal life.”
