“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.” (JN 6: 53-56)
Our Lord comes to our bodies and souls as “the Flesh of the Son of Man” and “his Blood.” This brings to us “eternal life.” It helps us to “remain in Him and Him in us.” We are like living Tabernacles—wherever we go, we take Him with us.
“Whoever eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood, remains in me and I in him, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
