Seeking Wisdom

Readings for Sunday, August 19 — 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Proverbs 9:1-6; Psalm 34: 2-7; Ephesians 5:15-20; John 6:51-58

Suggested Reflection Questions:

  • The first reading uses feminine pronouns, instead of the masculine pronouns we’re used to. What does this difference mean to you? How can we think of God as both a father and mother?
  • What does it mean in your life to bless and glorify the Lord, like the psalm mentions? How can you taste and see the goodness of the Lord?
  • How do you try to follow God’s will in your life? How do you make decisions on how to act?
  • Jesus talks about being the bread of Heaven in the Gospel today. How does this Gospel relate to the Eucharist? Does it help you gain a better understanding of the Eucharist?
