…Just as God provides us with food to sustain our physical or natural life, even more importantly he provides us with food to sustain our spiritual life. In John 6:27 Jesus says, “Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.” This remark is significant. Like so many of Jesus’ remarks, it is an enigmatic phrase pregnant with deep theological content. The spiritual food that Jesus gives us will prevent us from ever growing hungry. We will never be spiritually undernourished: “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty” (Jn 6:35). When we resolve to cooperate fully with God’s design and allow the power of the Eucharist to be released in our lives, remarkable things can happen.
