Weekly Devotion – August 13thWeekly Devotions
Jesus clearly intends the phrase “bread of life” to have a much more particular meaning during Sunday’s Gospel. He identifies the phrase with His bodily flesh and blood. When He says that His flesh will be given for the life of the world, Jesus is referring to His perfect sacrifice at Calvary. There can be no doubt that these powerful words point both to His death and to the Holy Eucharist, the means by which His sacrifice is represented on altars around the world.
We pray together: St. Jude, may the body of Christ sanctify me, refresh me, and strengthen me today.
