I came across it in Intercom, which is a Catholic pastoral resource magazine published by Veritas. It’s editor, John Cullen, in an article is reflecting on Jesus as The Bread of Life
He writes - Richard McIlkenny was one of the ‘Birmingham Six’. He wrote these words:
"As outcasts of society locked up in prisons bare the Eucharist, Lord is the gift to us in which we all can share. In communion, Lord, we are made as one by you, our God and gracious king, and we in joy your praises sing."
Here in St Andrew’s, with us able, thankfully, to get many more again in our church and halls, and with singing again permitted, I would encourage you to start coming back to Mass, if you haven’t already done so. Register here.
Get back into the routine again and each Sunday come and be nourished by the Eucharist, the Body of Christ. It is Real Presence. It is such a wonderful mystery of our faith. It is Christ, the Bread of Life, who nourishes us at Mass.
Don’t think that by coming along to Mass that you will be depriving others of a seat. You definitely won’t be.
Come back and meet Jesus and receive Him in the Mass as The Bread of Life.
“There is nothing so great as the Eucharist. If God had something more precious, he would have given it to us”
St John Vianney.
