Jesus gives His Body

“I am the living bread that has come down from heaven. If anyone eat of this bread, he shall live forever; and the bread that I will give is My Flesh for the life of the world.” 

The Jews argued with one another, saying, “How can this man give us His Flesh to eat?”
But Our Lord did not change the meaning of His words. Instead He said what He meant with even stronger words,

“Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the Flesh of The Son of Man, and drink His Blood, you shall not have life in you. He who eats My Flesh and drinks My Blood has life everlasting, and I will raise him up on the last day. For My Flesh is food indeed, and My Blood is drink indeed. He who eats My Flesh, and drinks My Blood, abides in Me and I in him.”

Preparations

alt

Sacred Scripture asks, "What will this child become?"   Luke 1: 66

 

alt

The Rite of Baptism, some few years back in these eight children's lives, 
asked parent and godparent, 

"What do you ask of God's Church for your child?"

 

 

alt

These adults declared their specific desire to have this child brought into God's family,
given a share in God's life,
and the opportunity and grace to reach eternal happiness in God's home in heaven.

 

 

alt

This desire implies the acceptance of the responsibility of training the child in the practice of the faith.
