“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 6:58

TODAY’S WORD…

“Anyone who eats this bread will live for ever.”

– John 6:58

 

REFLECTION…

Jesus is the true Bread of life. He invites us to nourish our soul frequently with the food of His body.

Jesus gives life. We live by Him, as our bodies live by our food. And, because Jesus lives, we shall live also.

 

QUOTE…

“Alluding to the Eucharist, Jesus said: … “anyone who eats this bread will live for ever.” The Son of God, becoming flesh, could become bread and in this way be the nourishment of His people journeying toward the promised land of heaven. We need this bread to cope with the toil and exhaustion of the journey. Sunday, day of the Lord, is the propitious occasion to draw strength from Him, who is the Lord of life.

The Sunday precept, therefore, is not a simple duty imposed from outside. To participate in the Sunday celebration and to be nourished with the Eucharistic bread is a need of a Christian, who in this way can find the necessary energy for the journey to be undertaken.[…]

To follow the Way means man’s own fulfilment; to lose it, is to lose himself. The Lord does not leave us alone on this journey. He is with us…”   – Pope Benedict XVI

 

PRAYER…

Lord, You are the Bread of life. You are my Nourishment!
