Jesus gives himself wholly to us

The Most Holy Body & Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi)

Dewt. 8:2-3; 14b-16a; Psalm 146; 1Corinth. 10:16-17; John 6:51-58

Read: “I am the living bread who came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live for ever.”

Reflect: Jesus gives himself wholly to us, not only as our daily nourishment, but to enable us to obtain the fullness of life.

“Whoever believes that he has been fed by his Body and by the Blood which he shed for us, will obtain the power so that, on his part, he will be changed into a gift, as St. Augustine says: ‘ Be the one who receives, and receive whatever you are’ (Sermon 272, Pentecost Sunday)” (St. John Paul II)

Pray: Pray that you will always understand and appreciate the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Let us pray for those who find difficulty in understanding this gift.

Act: Recall your experience when God entered your life! Make an act of thanksgiving.
