Bread of Life


The Eucharist, the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, contained really and substantially under the appearances of bread and wine. It is called bread from the matter from which it is confected and as bread, i.e., food in general, keeps the life in the body, so the Holy Eucharist increases the spiritual life of the soul (John 6).
