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.
