"Pope Francis asks a striking question in today's Angelus address concerning disbelief. Following the teaching of John 6, known as the Bread of Life Discourse, many hearers of Jesus turned away from the Lord. The Gospel states, 'As a result of this, many [of] his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him' (John 6:66).
"Today, Pope Francis asks, 'Where does this disbelief come from? What is the reason for this rejection?'"
