“He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. My flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. He who eats this bread will live forever” (John 6:51-58).
Sixty days after Easter Sunday and since 1264, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ to proclaim the faith of believers in the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. It is celebrated in our Province of Fatima on Thursday or Sunday.
Every human being hungers and thirsts for fullness. When He tells us that whoever eats His flesh and drinks His blood has eternal life, He is telling us that whoever is united to Him has life in fullness.
Come to the Eucharist, participate in communion with the body of the Lord.
Your union with Him will give you fullness and will also give you strength so that you can give fullness of life to others.
