I am the living Bread…
May 5, 2022
Dear Family of Mary!
In our Gospel for today (John 6:44-51), Jesus tells us that He is “The Bread of Life”. Indeed, this Heavenly Food changes everything for us. Jesus becomes our food and our sacrifice to the Father because only He can satisfy the debt we have incurred by our sins. Jesus saves us in the Eucharist:
Jesus said to the crowds:
“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day. It is written in the prophets: They shall all be taught by God. Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father.
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died;
this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my Flesh for the life of the world.” (John 6: 44-51)
Our Lady has made the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass the center of each day in Medjugorje! The pilgrims are presented with the Holy Mass twice each day, once in their home language, and then in the evening with all the pilgrims together. Our Mother calls us to “come to the table of my Son!” Let her message from August 2, 2016 draw your hearts to the Eucharistic Lord:
August 2, 2016
I have come to you – among you –
for you to give me your concerns
so that I may offer them to my Son;
that I may intercede for you before Him
for your good.
I know that each of you has his concerns, his trials.
Therefore I am inviting you in a motherly way:
come to the table of my Son.
He is breaking bread for you;
He is giving Himself to you;
He is giving you hope;
He is asking for more faith, hope and serenity from you.
He is seeking of you to battle within against
egoism, judgement and human weaknesses.
Therefore, as a mother, I am saying: pray;
because prayer gives you strength for the interior battle.
My Son, when He was little, often said to me
that there will be many who will love me and call me ‘mother’.
Among you, I feel love.
For the sake of that love
I am imploring my Son
that none of you, my children,
will return home the same as he came;
that you may take with you all the more hope, mercy and love;
that you may be my apostles of love
who will witness with their lives
that the Heavenly Father is the source of life
and not of death.
anew, in a motherly way I am imploring you,
pray for the chosen ones of my Son,
for their blessed hands –
for your shepherds –
that they may preach my Son with all the more love
and in this way bring about conversions.
Jesus is the Bread of Life! We are so blessed!
Here is the prayer to Our Lady we are praying every day in May!
In Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!
