Catch It And You Keep It

The Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Today's Word (RC):
Exodus 16:2-15 (Manna "fell from the sky" to feed the wandering Israelites)
Psalm 78:3-4, 23-25, 54 (The Lord gave them bread from heaven)
Ephesians 4:17-24 (Be renewed in the spirit of your minds)
John 6:24-35 (The Bread of Life Discourse: "Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life")

And (UMC): James 1:12, 16-19 (What A Christian Has/Does, qpka. 'What A Fool Believes')
('Fool' in this context is taken as the rejection of ways of the world to follow Christ!)

And today's Sign for Our Times:

Falling Rock

The puns and wordplay are all intended.

For once, I'm going to follow the advice of St. Francis of Assisi, who once taught his brothers in the Friars Minor to "preach the Gospel...and when necessary, use words."

I ask you quite humbly to figure this one out. A couple of well placed symbols and pictures speak a multitude of words.

If you catch it, you'll want to keep it.
