“I am the living bread
that came down from heaven,
whoever eats this bread will live forever
and the bread that I will give is my flesh
for the life of the world.”

John 6:51

“I am the bread of life”

John 6:35

“For His body, has been given to you
under the appearance of bread
and His blood, under the appearance of wine,
so that, when you have partaken
of the body and blood of Christ,
you might be one body and one blood with Him.
So shall we become Christ-bearers [“Christophers”].
His body and blood are diffused through all our members –
see, then, how we become participants
in the divine nature!”

St Cyril of Jerusalem (313-350)
Bishop of Jerusalem,
Father & Doctor of the Church

“But the bread of Moses was not perfect,
it was only given to the Israelites.
Because He wanted to show,
that His gift is superior to that of Moses
and the call to the nations still more perfect,
our Lord said: “If anyone eats this bread he shall live forever,”
for the bread from God
“has come down from heaven”
and is given to the whole world (Jn 6:51).”

St Ephrem (306-373)
Father & Doctor of the Church

“God has exercised His condescension
towards our weakness
and placed all His life-force
into the elements of bread and wine,
which are thus endowed
with the spirit of His own life.
So believe in it without hesitation,
for our Lord Himself has clearly said:
“This is my body” and “This is my blood.

St Cyril of Alexandria (380-444)
Father & Doctor of the Church
