57 I live because of the living Father who sent me; in the same way, anyone who feeds on me will live because of me.
Now, we can begin to see the picture of what it means to be connected to Jesus. Jesus is connected to God the Father and the Holy Spirit who are three in one. The Holy Trinity. Jesus invites us into as intimate a relation and communion with him as we can imagine. We are not eating human flesh when we eat the bread of communion or drinking blood when we taste the wine, but Jesus is present there is a unique way. And as the bread and wine of communion are consumed, because the nutrients of the bread and wine are broken down and used, he becomes part of us.Part of our body itself.
So, in a sense, after receiving Holy Communion, we are bringing Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to the world through us.
What are some of the symbols of Holy Communion that are meaningful for you?
