Long for the Bread of Heaven to fill your entire being. You will become hungry again with other breads; Jesus’ gift of himself in the Sacrament of his love will satisfy the hunger in your spirit.
There is a quiet, unrelenting joy in this season, which proclaims the abiding presence of Jesus as the nourisher of your soul. Jesus has already raised you up on the “last day,” which for St. John has reference to Good Friday. Jesus draws you to himself on the cross and embraces you as he rises. Adhere to Jesus; this is the meaning of belief in John. If you cling to the cross, you will cling to Jesus in the resurrection. Just as fire clings to the wood it burns, the Spirit will cling to you.
What are these?
Food that never perishes. v. 27
Work of God, that I believe v. 29
Lord, You are the bread of life v. 35
Faith in You, eternal life v. 40
