"Is not the bread we break a sharing in the body of Christ?" —1 Corinthians 10:16

This book, One Bread, One Body, is intended to motivate us to celebrate Mass and receive Holy Communion daily, or as often as possible. Therefore, the feast of Corpus Christi is of special significance for us. We pray that everyone who has ever read this book is totally committed to Jesus and in a deep communion with Him. Then it would be normal to express this communion in the way Jesus taught us at the Last Supper.

As we do this in memory of Him (1 Cor 11:24), we grow into deeper communion with Jesus. Through Jesus, we have communion with the Father and in the Spirit. We are also in communion with all those who receive Holy Communion. "We, many though we are, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf" (1 Cor 10:17).

If we could receive and give communion in the deepest sense of the word, our communions would be catalysts to change the world. Nations would be united. Denominations would crumble, and all Christians would be one as Jesus and the Father are one (Jn 17:21). We would see deep unity within church congregations instead of pettiness and jealousies. Marriages and families would be one in mind and heart. The whole world would be radically and quickly changed into the image and likeness of God if we received and distributed communion in the deepest and fullest way.

Prayer: Jesus, give me a desire to receive You daily in Holy Communion.
Promise: "For My flesh is real food and My blood real drink. The man who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood remains in Me, and I in him." —Jn 6:55-56
Praise: "O body of Christ! O blood of the Lord!"
