Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time: And the world became Eucharistic bread

Today’s Gospel continues the discourse on the “bread of heaven,” from last week. It begins with an outrageous statement: the bread to eat is “his own flesh.” The reaction of those present is understandable and justified. They discuss among themselves, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” They understand that he no longer refers only to the spiritual assimilation of God’s revelation, but also to a “concrete eating,” not metaphorical.
