Third Thursday of Easter

From the Word of the Day

 “I am the bread of life.  Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died, this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my Flesh for the life of the world.”   (John 6: 48-51)                                             

 

How should we live this Word2011041851holy_mass_1_inside[1]

 Jesus is not only bread, but living bread, alive and vital, able to transmit life.  The life that is in Him is the same life of the Living Father.  This bread, which recalls the manna, is the flesh that recalls the lamb.  Christ is our Easter.  His flesh is the cornerstone of salvation!  The Eucharist is the Mystery of the Body and Blood of Christ!

 In my pause for silent contemplation, I will ask Jesus to increase my faith in Him, in the Mystery of the Eucharist so that my life may be lived in Him.

Lord, strengthen my faith in You and in Your Word.

The Voice of the Acts of Thomas

We eat Your sacred Body, crucified for us.  We drink Your precious Blood, poured out for us.  May Your Body be our salvation!  May Your Blood remit our sins!  Through Your Resurrection that recalls Life, we will live again and be the elect before Your justice.
