“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 6:48

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“I am the Bread of Life.”

.

– John 6:48 (NIV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus explicitly reveals the great mystery of the Blessed Eucharist.

If His real presence in the Eucharist is accepted on faith,

then His meaning is quite clear

and we can see how infinite and tender His love for us is.

.

This bread is Christ’s human nature.

It is so great a mystery that it has always acted as a touchstone for Christian faith. :

Immediately after the Consecration of the Mass

this bread is proclaimed as “the mystery of our faith”.

.

The true use of the Sacraments

is to ascend from them to Christ:

and by the partaking of Him alone

we get everlasting life.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

O Bread of Life, feed me.

O Great Mystery, strengthen me.
