The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his Flesh to eat?” 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. Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever.”
Dear Jesus how can I thank You for this Communion visit. You the great Father of heaven and earth have come to be my guest. My heart is very thankful and is singing You a thank you song. Thank You for coming today, thank You again and again for everything. I believe in Thee, I hope in Thee, I trust Thee. Dear Jesus keep me good. (A prayer I learned before my 1st Holy Communion and I have prayed it ever since.)
