“I am the Bread of Life”
I am the Living Bread
The Jews murmured about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven,” and they said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph? Do we not know his father and mother? Then how can he say, ‘I have come down from heaven’?” Jesus answered and said to them, “Stop murmuring among yourselves. No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day. It is written in the prophets: ‘They shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died; this is the bread that comes down from heaven so that one may eat it and not die. 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 6:41-51)
Last evening I was at the Acadian Museum in Miscouche near Summerside. I belong to the Board of the Museum and we have meetings regularly. The meeting began at 7:00 p.m. and was over at 9:00 p.m. Today I will celebrate Holy Mass at the Little shrine of Our Lady of Prince Edward Island at 9:00 a.m. As we have a good number of French speaking Catholics around here, I have decided to have a French Mass every Thursday morning.
Many still continue to enter the names of the living and the dead of their families in the Book of Remembrance. Yesterday the book was on the altar during Holy Mass and I prayed for all those inscribed. It only costs $15.00 to inscribe a person in the book for one year and I offer two Masses a week for them.
(Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior given to Father Melvin. Jesus gave him this message.)
“I love you, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters spread throughout the world. I have given you the greatest gift I could give you, namely Myself. I am the Bread of Life and anyone who eats this bread will live forever. The Bread of Life is the Eucharist, which I celebrated with My Apostles on Holy Thursday. I took bread and wine and changed them into My Body and Blood and gave these to My Apostles to eat and drink. They did so and they were united to Me in a very special way. I want all those, who believe in Me and have repented of their sins, to come and receive Me in the Holy Eucharist as often as possible. Holy Mass is offered every day in most parishes and the priest who has received the power to consecrate the bread and wine into My Body and Blood prepares this gift for you. Come and eat My flesh and My blood and I will live in your heart at all times. Remember that the Eucharist is the gift of Myself to you. Through the Eucharist you are united to Me and I will help you and guide you all the days of your life. Believe in the great miracle of the Eucharist and come often to adore Me in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you all.”
