BELIEF IN HIM BRINGS ETERNAL LIFE
 
The Church assures us, by ancient and abiding tradition that Jesus meant what He said.
 
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
In today's reading from the Acts of the Apostles we notice that the Ethiopian was reading the scriptures when Philip caught up with him. Philip asked, "Do you really grasp what you are reading?" The man replied, "How can I unless someone explains it to me?" Philip then became his teacher. In a real sense Philip represents the Church and all its tradition. The Ethiopian represents any person of good will who wishes to know more about faith.
 
Also good case in point today, is the teaching of Jesus in the Gospel whereby He declares, "The bread I will give is my flesh for the life of the world." The Church understands that the Eucharist is truly the body and blood of Christ, which we receive at each Communion. The Church assures us, by ancient and abiding tradition that Jesus meant what He said.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: May we rejoice that we have our Church as a sure, safe, guide for teaching and interpreting the scriptures. This is were we can be feed and nourished spiritual for our journey in life with God. Let all the earth cry out to God with joy (Ps 66)
