Today we hear the famous John 3:16 verse at Mass: “for God so loved the world He sent His only Son!” Before that though Jesus speaks of being lifted up like Moses lifted up serpents in the desert. Huh? What’s He talking about? It’s a type (foreshadowing of what is to come). But then why did God send the serpents in the first place? Because the complained at what was sent to them as food. How often do we grumble at the Bread that has come down from Heaven--the Eucharist?
