"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 (6:51)
Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. John (6:53)
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. John (6:54)
For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. John (6:55)
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. John (6:56)
Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me. John (6:57)
Jesus Christ is truly present in our midst. For Catholics, the Eucharist, or Holy Communion, (one of the three Sacraments of Initiation) is the most profound way we encounter the real presence of Jesus Christ.
