Life within you.

April 23, 2021 3:00 am

“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.” (JN 6: 53)

How difficult were these words for Jesus’s generation: “eat the Flesh,” “drink his Blood.” Tomorrow many of his disciples will leave Him after this statement. We can understand why this is so important for Our Lord. He loves us and knows perfectly how we can realize our destiny, our vocation, and fulfill our lives. We can’t live without being united with Him, “eating the Flesh and drinking his Blood.”

“Whoever eats my Flesh and drinks my Blood, remains in me and I in him says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
