Eighth Day:

Jesus Made Himself the Bread

of Life and the Hungry One

 

“He proved His love to us by giving His own life, His own being. ‘He being rich became poor’ for you and for me. He gave Himself totally. He died on the Cross. But before He died, He made Himself the Bread of Life to satisfy our hunger for love, for Him. He said, ‘Unless you eat My Flesh and drink My Blood, you cannot have life eternal.’

And the greatness of that love of His made Him the hungry one, and He said, ‘I was hungry and you fed Me, and unless you feed Me, you cannot enter eternal life.’ That is the giving of Christ. And today God keeps on loving the world. He keeps on sending you and me to prove that He loves the world, that He still has that compassion for the world. It is we who have to be His love, His compassion in the world of today. But to be able to love we must

have faith, for faith in action is love, and love in action is service. That is why Jesus made Himself the Bread of Life, that we might be able to eat and live and be able to see Him in the distressing disguise of the poor.”

 

““Our life must be woven with the Eucharist. From Jesus in the Eucharist we learn how much God thirsts to love us and how He thirsts for our love and for the love of souls in return. From Jesus in the Eucharist we receive the light and strength to quench His Thirst.”

 

 

Thought for the day:

“Believe that He, Jesus, is in the appearance of Bread and that He, Jesus, is in the hungry, naked, sick,

lonely, unloved, homeless, helpless, and hopeless.

 

Ask for the grace see Jesus in the Bread of Life and to serve

Him in the distressing disguise of the poor.
