This is my body, this is my blood.

This is my body, this is my blood. Catholic Gospels - Matthew, Luke, Mark, John - Inspirations of the Holy Spirit Mark 14:12-16 16:22-26

12 Now on the first day of the unleavened bread, when they sacrificed the Passover lamb, the disciples said to him: Where do you want us to go, and prepare for you to eat the Passover lamb?
13 And he sent two of his disciples, and said to them: Go to the city; and there you shall meet you a man carrying a pitcher of water, follow him;
14 And wherever he shall go in, say to the master of the house, the master says, where is my dining room, where I may eat the Passover lamb with my disciples?
15 And he will show you a large dining room furnished; and there prepare for us.
16 And his disciples went their way, and came into the city; and they found as he had told them, and they prepared the Passover lamb.
22 And while they were eating, Jesus took bread; and blessing it, he broke it, and gave to them, and said: Take it. This is my body.
23 And having taken the chalice, giving thanks, he gave it to them. And they all drank of it.
24 And he said to them: This is my blood of the new covenant, which shall be shed for many.
25 Amen I say to you, that I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I shall drink it new in the kingdom of God.
26 And when they had said an hymn, they went forth to the mount of Olives.

Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Body and Blood of Christ - This is my body, this is my blood. Nothing happens in this world unless it is allowed by the will of my Father. Many will question the divine will for all the evil that afflicts the world, but I tell you in truth, this is a product of the evil one who has been given power by those who reject God. My Father allows evils to chastise humanity for its disobedience.

You could live in a better world if you obeyed God’s commandments and loved one another as I have loved you.

I sent my apostles to prepare the upper room where I would institute the great sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. I foresaw all future events just I foresaw the future of my Church. I had the power to perform miracles and I used it, not to impress people, not to display my power but in order to fulfill the messianic promises announced by Isaiah (Is. 29:18), and to glorify my Father who sent me.

The moment came when I had to become the sacrificial lamb that takes away the sins of the world, this was going to put a stop to animal sacrifices, in fact this would be the only sacrifice that would satisfy the justice of God. This would be my last night with the disciples and by no coincidence was the Feast when they sacrificed the Passover Lamb in memory of the deliverance of Israel from the slavery of the Egyptians.

I was about to be crucified the following day, my flesh, blood, soul and divinity would be offered to my Father for the forgiveness of sins and the time had come to perpetuate this sacrifice in a sacramental form.

I had already told my disciples that I was the bread that comes down from Heaven, the heavenly manna that gives eternal life. I had told them, unless you eat of my flesh and drink of my blood, you will have no life in you.

Now, with my heavenly power I was about to perform my greatest miracle.

As the eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek, I took the bread, I blessed it, then I looked up to Heaven, I broke the bread and gave it to my disciples, I drew from my divine power and said: “Take and eat, this is my body”
In the same way I took the cup with wine, blessed it, and gave it to my disciples to drink, then by my divine power I said, “this is my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant, that will be shed for the forgiveness of sins. Do this in memory of me.”

I designated my apostles as priests and ministers of the Holy Eucharist, anointed with the power to transmit this ministry in my Church to other priests.

By my command, I instituted the priesthood and the sacrament of immortality. I make my self truly available to you every time the bread and wine is consecrated by one of my anointed priests.

In human terms they say “you are what you eat”, I tell you solemnly, when you repent of your sins and receive me in a state of grace, then as you eat my flesh which is the bread of life and drink my blood which is the elixir of immortality, you are purified and prepared for eternal life, where you will become like me.

I am waiting for you to receive me worthily when you come to Holy Mass; I am also truly present in every tabernacle, ready to listen to your prayers and to bless you when you acknowledge me. I love you.
