About this Bread of Life Quote from Pope Francis
This Bread of Life quote from Pope Francis reminds us that only Jesus can satisfy our spiritual needs. When we seek satisfaction elsewhere, we are disappointed. Jesus knows what we truly need and he provides it by giving us Himself in the Eucharist. When we receive Holy Communion, we are united with him in a physical and intimate way.
This union with our Lord enables us to love each other. 1 John 4:19 tells us “We love because he first loved us.” So we do not just relieve the Eucharist for our own benefit. This union with our Lord also enables us to love others and spread the Gospel message, not just with words but with our actions.
