Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time

"Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me." Most of those who heard these words must have believed them to be foolishness, not wisdom. Do we really see them any differently? Sure, we have our Communion rituals, but are we truly partaking of Wisdom's food and drink? Jesus offers us Love incarnate, and we turn it into a magic cookie. Is that wisdom or foolishness?
