Jesus Explains, “True Food and True Drink” (2)

Extract

Holy Eucharist, chalice and host

Jesus said to the Jews, “The one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink”. (John 6:54-55)

Thought

Today, Jesus continues to extend that same offer to us through the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist, “true food and true drink”.

Reflection

Lord Jesus, since I cannot now physically receive you in the Holy Eucharist, come spiritually into my heart. I love you, Lord Jesus.

Prayer: Renewal

Lord Jesus,
give us humility wherever pride reigns,
pardon wherever offence abides,
grace wherever sin abounds;
we pray to you;
Jesus Christ, risen Lord, have mercy on us. Amen.
