Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit.--Psalm 31:6
Mass readings: Acts 7:51--8:1 / John 6:30-35
There's a popular graffiti that goes something like this: ''To be is to do'' -- Socrates. ''To do is to be'' -- Sartre. ''Do be do be do'' -- Sinatra.
Life is sometimes a muddle of being and doing. We get so preoccupied with what we're planning to do, that we forget who we are. We get so concerned with what we want God to do for us that we forget who God is.
In today's Gospel, the crowd asks Jesus, ''What can you do?'' He answers by saying who He is: ''I am the bread of life.'' Jesus is the source of our life in God. As we share the bread of the Eucharist, we are transformed into Christ. If who we are is Christ, then what we do will always be charged with His love.
Prayer: Lord, may all I do always begin in You and through You reach completion.
