To Whom Shall We Go ? JOHN 6:60–69
In this Sunday’s gospel we see that many of the followers of Jesus could not accept what he was teaching and considered it intolerable language.He, however continued with his doctrine even though he knew who would betray him. Many of his disciples left him but there were those who remained because they agreed with Simon Peter who said: “You have the message of eternal life, and we believe”.Upon reflection we can become aware of similar experiences in our life.
In 1980 Archbishop Oscar Romero of San Salvador was assassinated while celebrating Mass. Like Jesus, he was considered in that country the voice of the poor and voiceless. He spoke out strongly against social injustice and the cruelty of the security forces against the marginalised campesinos.
