We Catholics have been blessed with the faith in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist - "the bread that comes down from heaven." We have this amazing gift each week. This bread that gives life.
In this Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, let us be thankful for the gift of Christ's Body that we receive in the form of bread. May we be constantly aware of the necessity of preparing ourselves in receiving worthily this bread that gives everlasting life.
