Jesus answered them and said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled…” (John 6:26). It is as if Christ said, “You seek Me to satisfy the flesh, not the Spirit.” How many seek Jesus for no other objective than to get some kind of temporal benefit! One has a business that has run into problems, and he seeks the intercession of the clergy; another is oppressed by someone more powerful than himself, and he flees to the church. Another desires intervention with someone over whom he has little influence. One person wants this, and another person wants that. The church is filled with these kinds of people! Jesus is scarcely sought after for His own sake…. Here too, Christ says, you seek Me for something else; seek Me for My own sake. He insinuates the truth that He Himself is that food…“that endures to eternal life.” – St. Augustine
