And the rock was the Christ

“All ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink,  for they drank from a spiritual rock that followed them,  and the rock was the Christ.” (1 COR 10: 4)

Rabbinic tradition amplified this into a spring that followed the Israelites throughout their migration. St. Paul applies this image to the Christ–“the rock was the Christ.” We can receive “the same spiritual food” and “the same spiritual drink” from Our Lord, who follows us and leads us to Heaven.

“Repent, says the Lord; the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Gospel Acclamation)
