Bishop Pablo Virgilio S. David
IN TODAY’S Gospel, Jesus faces the people who have followed him by boat after the feeding of the multitude. They are the same people who have been satisfied by the five loaves and two fish, which was the Gospel for the previous Sunday. John tells us Jesus would now speak to them about another kind of food, the food that he says he really wanted to give them. He calls it the “FOOD THAT ENDURES FOR ETERNAL LIFE.” If you eat of it you will not be hungry again, he says to them.
