JOHN 6:35; "I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. WHOEVER COMES TO ME WILL NEVER BE HUNGRY, AND WHOEVER BELIEVES IN ME WILL NEVER BE THIRSTY."
By REV. FR. PAUL ANIGBORO

Jesus gives life in the Eucharist. When we partake of it, we gain life and strength. Our coming to the Lord in faith, and our receiving nourishment from him, creates an opening for him to live out his life in us, so that, in some way, we can continue to give flesh to his fundamental outlook and attitudes. Jesus wants to live in us and that is why he invites us to come to him always. 

The resulting effect if allowing Jesus into our lives is what we see in the first reading of today in the life of St. Stephen, the First Christian martyr. Even when he was about to be stoned, Stephen did not answer anger with anger, nor frustration with rage. He rose above the unbelief and violence by the strength he drew from the risen Lord. Stephen stayed in possession of himself because he had surrendered that self to the Lord Jesus.

Lord, give me enough wisdom to discover you every day as the nourishment and support of my life. Amen.

Good morning and do have a wonderful day ahead. God loves you.
