“Many of Jesus’ disciples who were listening said, ‘This saying is hard; who can accept it?’” (Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me
and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.’”)
Which words of Jesus, in particular, call out to you for reflection?
Sit with them, paying attention to what consoles or disturbs you.
How do you find Jesus drawing you into a deeper relationship with Him and His Father?
As yourself, “What on earth am I doing for heaven’s sake?”
Heritage word—“We can never be Christ to others unless Jesus is first Savior, Redeemer, Lord, Bread of Life to us.”
(Sister Mary Louise Ann, 8th Provincial of the Toledo Province)
