It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” (Jn 6: 63)

At this time, when many of us cannot approach Holy Communion because of the pandemic, I’m reminded that our Lord Jesus Christ does offer us Himself, as the Source of Life, also in other ways. And I find I must be extra-attentive, these days, to let myself be nourished by Him in these other ways, – particularly by His life-creating Word, of which He says: “the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.”

So let me take pause today, for a bit of prayerful reading, because I need not hunger or thirst, according to my Lord’s promise: “I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.” (Jn 6: 35)
