Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink.Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him.”John 6:53-56
The Eucharist makes us more united with Christ
What does it even mean to be more united with Jesus? First, it means that we take our seat right alongside the original apostles and partake of the same meal received in the Last Supper. Secondly, we become stronger in our resistance against the temptations of the devil; saying “no” to sin becomes a whole lot easier. Also, there is a special grace that we receive by way of the Eucharist; a certain sensitivity, if you will, to the urgings of the Holy Spirit that directs us towards our life’s vocation and to the very longings of Jesus’ heart.
