Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 29, A.D. 2005

Deuteronomy 8:2-3,14-16
Psalm 147:12-15,19-20
1 Corinthians 10:16-17
John 6:51-58

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Living Bread, Living Father, live forever. . . . (see John 6:1-58)

Jesus reveals He is the Living Bread sent by the Living Father so that we will live forever. He gives His flesh for the life of the world. Whoever eats this Bread will live forever. He continues one must eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood to have Life within, eternal life, and will be raised up on the last day. This is how one remains in Him and He in us. It is our most holy and precious communion.

Consumed by what we consume, the very Life of Christ remains in us, reforming us in His very image and likeness, and sending us forth, transfigured to belove souls to Him. He remains in us as we will to remain in Him, humbly emptying ourselves of self to make Him more and more present. St. John the Baptist speaks truly for the soul receiving Him, “He must increase, and I must decrease.” It is one’s complete shedding of self in gift to our Lord, as He has first loved us and gives Himself to us, that we, His bride, His Church, become and remain as One with Him. This is the way for bringing Him to the world, for feeding others with the bread of Life.

O Lord,
grace me to give myself completely in holy love to You who beloves and gives Yourself completely
to us.

- Mary Williams
