Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
April 23 2021 Friday
"My Flesh is true food, and My Blood is true drink."
Jesus truly gives us His very Flesh and Blood in the Holy Eucharist.
Since we cannot receive Jesus sacramentally, because of the strict quarantine, we continue to receive Him spiritually into our hearts by prayer. Jesus cannot be quarantined. He continues to nourish us with our daily bread - His word. The word of God nourishes, heals, guides, strengthens, and gives hope and comfort to our anxious minds and hearts, during this time of pandemic. Jesus stays in us, making us become another Christ to others, if we give Him a pleasing dwelling space in our hearts.
