Ego sum panis vitae (Jn 6:35).

I am bread of life.

As human beings we need special food for our bodies and souls. Therefore we are looking for the source which would provide us with the essentials of life. For us Christians such a source is Jesus Christ who knows best what we really need. Although he can give us everything, we try to find happiness somewhere else. We are unlikely to believe that we can receive all graces from him who is our Lord. Accordingly, we meet various people and spend much time in doing the unnecessary things. As a result, we waste our strength and become sad. But the point is to fulfill the will of God in every moment of our lives. Only in this way we can be fully satisfied and peaceful. To be able to achieve it we ought to come to Jesus who is our bread of life. Just with him and supported with his spiritual food we are able to follow his steps to the heavenly kingdom.
