Jesus is the source of our life. Today we are reminded that Jesus takes the ordinary human act of eating and shows us that this familiar and loving action is the very way we can come to eternal life. The act -eating -is the same, however the food differs. The food Jesus offers is from heaven and it is on this which we feast – it is Jesus himself.
At Mass not only is the bread and wine transformed into the body of Christ but we too are changed and challenged to be the body of Christ to the wider world.
Our God nourishes us with Bread from heaven. Through eating and drinking the Body and Blood of Christ He is present to us, among us, and in us today. We are strengthened and nourished to live His life to the full.
