Did I mention at all that I was trying to evade writing a sermon for Corpus Christi? I managed remarkably effectively in the first part of the week, so that it was only at the characteristic late-night-before stage that I actually sat down to consider the Lectionary.
What did I find?
The gospel passage is none other than John 6 51-58
Now consider the Ordinary Time book.
In particular consider the entry for 29th August.
It's based on a passage from John.
Chapter 6, verses 51ff
And the author?
Me, myself and I!
