The bread of life: not merely earthly food, but the spiritual food that sustains us. This is the beauty of our faith: that we partake of the very food Christ gave us which is Christ himself.
One more thing: Children's faith can be so simple and straightforward. As my daughter prepares for her first Eucharist, the complexities of the Eucharist don't even surface. It simply is, without question. As parents we are most often the teacher, but now and then,we need to step back and learn a thing or two from the kids.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for the gift of the Eucharist. Give me a hunger for the food that is the life of the world, and help me to instill that hunger into my children. In your name I pray, Amen.
