Jesus: 'Whoever eats this bread will live forever'

by Sister Jacqueline Capelle

Jesus told the crowds, "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever, and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world."

What is the "flesh" that comes to the world? It is a gift from God, given to us in bread and wine. But they are more than symbols. When consecrated they are the Real Presence of Jesus, our sustenance for everlasting life -- the heart of our Catholic faith.

Being fed by the Real Presence, how are you called to share Jesus with others?





In a few words a very strong message. Thank you!

Such a MYSTERY we live in. We are each and all consecrated. We are each and all transformed. All the Earth is a tabernacle, filled with the Body and Blood of Christ.

The challenge: to become what we have received. Thanks, Jackie, for this reminder.
