In the Gospel for the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ, Jesus promises salvation to those who believe in him.  “I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world” (John 6: 51).  Jesus nourishes us with the love of God.  He gives himself completely, flesh and blood, for love of us.  In Eucharist we are sustained by love for love.  Through Christ, God’s love lives in us.  God wants us to give away this love as Jesus did.  My niece and her new husband gave of themselves each other at their recent wedding.  God’s love sustains them in their marriage.  Their love in Christ for one another sustains their love for others.  How has God sustained your love for others?  How do you sustain others?
