Whoever eats this bread will live forever

“This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.” (JN 6: 58)

In the beginning of the world, our ancestors—Adam and Eve—received the Tree of Life—which bore the fruit of immortality. They didn’t respect God’s order and brought original sin upon us. God sent us the Bread of Life, which tradition calls the “medicine of immortality.” With this Bread we become immortal, and we should meditate daily about our real home in Heaven, which is our final destination. We are born to be in Heaven.

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