The Living Bread

The Jews were confused – what did Jesus mean when he said he was the living bread that could give them eternal life? It sounded very strange and wrong to them. But (as Pope Francis pointed out recently), people have another hunger for life, love and eternity –which cannot be satisfied with ordinary food The body and blood of Christ, he said, can give people eternal life because “the substance of this bread is love.”

Thank you for the blessing of your spiritual nourishment, Lord, which sustains us as we wait in hope for your eternal kingdom.
