Every three years, in Year B of the Sunday Lectionary cycle, we interrupt Mark's gospel to turn for five weeks to the Gospel of John and Jesus' "Bread of Life" discourse. In Feeding on the Bread of Life, Fr. Anthony Oelrich invites preachers and pray-ers to explore more deeply what it means to see and not see, to eat and believe. Along the way, we discover in Christ Jesus all we hunger for and thirst after. In this rich homiletic resource, Fr. Oelrich reflects on the texture, complexity, and layers of the mystery of Jesus, the Bread of Life. Never again will priests and deacons "run out" of fruitful directions to explore John 6 with the people they serve during the unique five-week period of Year B, and other readers will appreciate the new windows into the chapter that Oelrich opens up.

Anthony Oelrich

Fr. Anthony Oelrich is a priest of the Diocese of St. Cloud, Minnesota, serving as rector and pastor of three parishes and the diocesan director of continuing education for clergy.

The five successive weeks on which the Sunday gospel reading are taken from John's discourse on the bread of life are a challenge for the preacher and the congregation. What more is to be said? Anthony Oelrich's refreshing book uncovers the dynamic development of the text, and gives a stimulating reflection for every passage. Timothy Radcliffe, OP, is author of Stations of the Cross and contributor to Give Us This Day published by Liturgical Press
