Bread of Life Discourses

These resources, created in collaboration with Fr. Michael Seavey of Portland, Maine, are provided for reflection on the Bread of Life discourses found in the Gospel of John, chapter 6. The homily helps, bulletin inserts, and other resources engage themes such as the spirituality of work, the works of mercy, and the culture of secularism. This series extends from July 29 through August 26, leading up to Labor Day weekend. Together with the USCCB Labor Day statement, these resources can equip parishes to examine contemporary labor and employment concerns through the lens of the Church’s rich body of social teaching, especially regarding the dignity of work and workers. Our prayer is that these aids empower parishes to be communities of salt and light in a world in need, bearing witness to the Good News and building the reign of God. 

Sample Homily for Week One: July 29
Sample Homily for Week Two: August 5
Sample Homily for Week Three: August 12
Sample Homily for Week Four: August 19
Sample Homily for Week Five: August 26
