“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: 54-56)
Our Lord loves us so much and wants our close relationship. To remain in us and to be sure that we can remain in Him, He gave us His body and blood as a “true food and true drink.” Only with His Body and Blood, we have eternal life, and we can remain in Him. With every Holy Communion we are closer to Him.
“Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him, says the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
