19th Sunday, based on John 6:41-51

Then the Jews began to complain about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” They were saying, “Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?” Jesus answered them, “Do not complain among yourselves. No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

About Dominic DeLay OP

Dominic is a filmmaker in Los Angeles, California. With his production company Mud Puddle Films he creates emotionally engaging, thought-provoking, and artistic films for mainstream audiences, films that ask questions more than give answers. And even the questions are not necessarily articulated in language. He likes to quote choreographer Martha Graham’s response when asked what one of her dances meant: “If I could tell you what it means, I wouldn’t have to dance it.”

His new film, “Inside Darkness,” is about three presidential candidates trapped in a dark cell. Watch the trailer and more at www.InsideDarkness.com.
