This is why the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it again. No one takes it away from me but i lay down on my own. I have the power to lay it down, and power to take it up again. This command i have received from my Father. (John 10:17-18)
Jesus already gave His life as food to nourish all of us through the Eucharist. May our life become nourishment to our family and to all human beings by touching and caring the suffering flesh of Christ in others.
