“Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me”.
It was at Jesus' last supper, on the night before He died, that Jesus instituted the Eucharist (Holy Communion). This painting is a prayer to God to help us to try to understand better how receiving Holy Communion brings about a change in us – in accordance with Jesus’ own words “… so whoever eats me will live because of me”.
Lord God, we know that the Eucharist is a precious gift to us, enlighten our minds to the fullness of your gift. Amen.
