John 6, 30-35:
“I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will not hunger, and he who believes in me will never thirst.
Pope Benedict XVI once told us that Christianity is not an ideology, but a personal encounter with Jesus Christ.
This encounter is the only one that completely changes our life.
We dwell on the rules. We cling to worship. But we do not cling to Jesus.
That is why many of us are “anaemic Christians”. We eat many “loaves” and it seems that for a moment they satisfy us.
But we do not come close to eating the true BREAD OF LIFE which is Christ himself.
He is the answer to our hunger and thirst for justice, happiness and love.
Put Jesus at the center of your life. Come as often as you can to the Eucharist and always eat of that BREAD that gives life to you and to the whole world.
Repeat many times today that prayer that people addressed to Jesus: “Lord, give us this bread always”.
