JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

TWENTIETH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR OF MARK
19th August 2018

Without food we cannot live. As we assimilate food and drink, we draw sustenance, the vital elements which keep us alive and healthy. But not everything we can eat and drink is good for us. Our choices determine our well-being, our lifestyle, our growth. Too much choice can lead to greed, making food our god, being controlled by our appetite. As the saying goes, we become what we eat.

Too many people in our world have no choice in the matter. Starvation, poverty, poor diet, failed harvests, polluted water and many other factors lead to disease, hopelessness and an early death for millions. The yawning chasm between rich and poor, the haves and the have-nots, has never been so blindingly obvious and so scandalously ignored as now.

Food and drink hold body and soul together, not merely of the individual, but of the community, our society, our world. Western consumerism has lost the meaning of the meal as a celebration of social cohesion, reducing it to takeaway fuel for the individual to be eaten in haste. The yawning chasm between this perception and the meaning of the Eucharist is almost unbridgeable.

St Augustine heard God’s voice saying to him: “I am the food of grown men: grow and you shall eat me. And you shall not change me into yourself as bodily food, but into me you shall be changed.” In Jesus, God chooses to come to us in the guise of weakness. It looks as if we assimilate him when we receive Holy Communion, but the reality is that we are dissolved into him, into his Body. We become what we eat. How can we refuse to offer ourselves to our starving brothers and sisters as Jesus did: “Take and eat”?

May the Lord bless you.

John
