"I Myself am the living Bread come down from heaven. If anyone eats this bread he shall live forever; the bread I will give is My flesh, for the life of the world." —John 6:51

When Jesus originally revealed to us His eucharistic presence, the response was: "How can He give us His flesh to eat?" (Jn 6:52) Today, we also respond: "This sort of talk is hard to endure! How can anyone take it seriously?" (Jn 6:60)

The Lord loves those who don't believe in His eucharistic love because of ignorance, confusion, or sin. To help these people believe in Him and receive Him in the Eucharist, He is raising up faith-filled people to be witnesses of His eucharistic presence. Do you love Jesus in the Eucharist so much that people can hardly help but notice? Is your life centered on the eucharistic Jesus? Is it the desire of your heart to go to Mass and Holy Communion every day of your life? Are the Scripture readings for daily Mass the very light of your life? Does your love for the eucharistic Jesus overflow in your daily conversations? Do you make visits to the Blessed Sacrament?

Receive God's grace to believe in and proclaim His eucharistic love. Share in the body and blood of Jesus (1 Cor 10:16). Eat His flesh and drink His blood (Jn 6:54). Love Him and be in communion with Him forever. Be His eucharistic witness.

Prayer: "Sweet Sacrament, we Thee adore. O make us love Thee more and more."
Promise: "Because the loaf of bread is one, we, many though we are, are one body." —1 Cor 10:17
Praise: Praise Jesus, Whose Body and Blood are the "source and summit" of our lives. Alleluia! Glory to God forever!
