Message :: Bread of Heaven
Rev. Dr. Libby Boatwright

As well as physical hunger, man also suffers from another form of hunger that cannot be sated with ordinary food. It is a hunger for life, a hunger for love, a hunger for eternity. Manna is the sign…that prefigured the food that satisfies this profound hunger present in man. Jesus gives us this nourishment—or rather, He Himself is the living bread that gives life to the world…the Body of Christ is the bread of the last times, able to give life, eternal life, because the substance of this bread is Love.

—Pope Francis, Holy Mass in the Square of Basilica of St. John Lateran, June 20, 2014
