Bulletin Shorts for the Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time

Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time – 22 August 2021  

Joshua 24:1-2a, 15-17, 18b.  Psalm 34:2-3, 16-17, 18-19, 20-21.  Ephesians 5:21-32.  John 6:60-69.  

One Last Bread of Life Story.  The gospel today is filled with doubt, murmuring, shock, and disbelief.  So much so, that many stopped following Jesus, returning to their former lives.  Jesus, thus, asked the Twelve:  “What about you?”  Peter answers for them:  “To whom shall we go?  We are convinced you are the Holy One of God.”  

  • Why do I still follow Jesus?  
  • Of what am I convinced about him?  
  • Bread of life.  Communion.  What do I believe?
