"Replacing Alcohol with Jesus as the Bread of Life"

This homily was given by Archbishop Sylvain Lavoie, OMI, Diocese of Keewatin-Le Pas, Manitoba, Canada, on the 19th Sunday of Ordinary Time, Cycle B, in 2006 and titled, "Put your faith in Jesus-the Bread of Life."

Archbishop Lavoie uses the example of Matt Talbot as one who replaced alcohol with Jesus as the Bread of Life. The daily Eucharist before work (and multiple times on Sunday) became extremely important to Matt from the time of his last drink. This homily can be read at
