” As evidence that He is the Son of God, Jesus makes the statement, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty,” (John 6:35). This window shows the bread and wheat that represents the first of the “I Am” sayings found in John. Here we catch a clear echo of the divine self-definition.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin prayed, “Since once again, Lord, I have neither bread nor wine nor altar, I will raise myself beyond these symbols, up to the pure majesty of the real itself; I, your priest, will make the whole earth my altar and on it will offer you all labors and sufferings of the world.”
Dear God, do not let us get caught up in the world and so forget that You are all we need. You are our bread, you are our life today and tomorrow. Teach us to be joyful to celebrate today! So that when others ask, “Why are you so happy?” We can reply, “Because God is all we need!” So through such a living witness friends, family and co-workers will come to You and see You in our lives. “Come, let us bow down and bend the knee: let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.” Amen.
