Father Damien lives the Eucharist with the lepers

Eating and drinking the Body and Blood of Christ does not make us cannibals. It, rather, is a partaking in the mystical union with Christ. In this sharing, He becomes one in us.

Father Damien lives the Eucharist with the lepers

Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life. Jn 6:54

Eating and drinking the Body and Blood of Christ does not make us cannibals. It, rather, is a partaking in the mystical union with Christ. In this sharing, He becomes one in us.

The union of the finite and the infinite realms takes place. The Jewish teachers of that time took the words of Jesus quite literally.

However, there is a difference between Jesus’ teaching and that of the Jewish teachers; like the manna eaten by the fore-parents and the bread of life that Jesus gives. It is not always easy to accept an idea which challenges our old ways of thinking.

Often, we are at loggerheads with a new idea. We refuse to think out of the box. We are too comfortable! Therefore, let us ask the Lord to help us remain open to his words that bring new life. --Vimal Raj SJ
