John 6:52-59

These passages in the discourse begin with the Jews quarreling with one another about Jesus offering his physical flesh. He responds by telling them that unless they eat his flesh and drink his blood they will not have life within them. They are blinded to the spiritual reality of his words.

I will admit that is nearly impossible to understand the Eucharist because of my human limitations, but because you say it, Lord, I believe.
