The 19 th Sunday in Ordinary Time

9 August 2009

Saint Andrew & Saint William Catholic Church in Verona, Wisconsin

As we continue hearing from the sixth chapter of Saint John’s Gospel – hearing our Lord Jesus' teaching on the Eucharist – we are given added reflection from Psalm 34: Taste and see the goodness of the Lord (Ps 34:8). To ponder the ability to "taste" and to "see" the goodness of the Lord is to ponder the great Mystery of God’s Presence. The term "mystery" refers to meaning that is hidden from our everyday understanding. Mysteries must be revealed to us before we can ever attempt to understand them. We might consider the sweet taste of honey as an illustration of a mystery: one cannot grasp at knowing the taste of honey without first having tasted it. Hearing someone else describe the taste of honey, or reading about the taste of honey in a book cannot reveal the real and true sweetness of honey. Said positively, we can know the taste of honey because it exists and because we have been given access to taste it. Perhaps "tasting and seeing" the goodness of the Lord happens in a somewhat similar way. People can try to tell us about God. Yet, we truly and really know God when He reveals Himself to us. And He has! We read about God and the Eucharist in the Bible and in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and we receive Him substantially in the Eucharist. We know the great Mystery of God’s presence by virtue of Divine Revelation – the fact that God has revealed Himself to us. This is precisely the sort of Divine Revelation we hear about in Saint John’s Gospel today. Jesus reveals Himself to us as "the Bread that came down from heaven" – a great mystery of our faith in the Eucharist. Hence, Jesus' words:

"They shall all be taught by God. Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from Him comes to Me." Let us thank God for His self-revelation that we can taste and see His goodness.
