I am the bread of life

I am the bread of life Catholic Gospels - Matthew, Luke, Mark, John - Inspirations of the Holy Spirit Juan 6:41-51

41 The Jews therefore murmured at him, because he had said: I am the living bread which came down from heaven.
42 And they said: Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How then can he say, I came down from heaven?
43 Jesus therefore answered, and said to them: Murmur not among yourselves.
44 No man can come to me, except the Father, who has sent me, draw him; and I will raise him up in the last day.
45 It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that has heard of the Father, and has learned, comes to me.
46 Not that any man has seen the Father; but he who is of God, he has seen the Father.
47 Amen, amen I say unto you: He that believeth in me has everlasting life.
48 I am the bread of life.
49 Your fathers did eat manna in the desert, and are dead.
50 This is the bread, which comes down from heaven; that if any man eats of it, he may not die.
51 I am the living bread, which came down from heaven.

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

19th Sunday in ordinary time - I am the bread of life It is a great difficulty for humanity to believe in a person claiming to be sent by God the Almighty, for this reason all the prophets fell into the hands of their enemies, since very few people were able to give welcome to their teachings and receive the gift that God had sent them.

In my case, I was born of the Virgin Mary in a conception not done with human seed but with the direct intervention of the Holy Spirit, my mother was chosen to participate in this event because of her unique purity and the privilege of having been borne exempt from original sin. My human existence was part of the eternal existence that I share as God with my Father and the Holy Spirit, who is in us; my mission on earth was that of teaching, forgiving and redeeming the humanity, that had rebelliously rejected the gifts of God manifested through the prophets. I brought perfection and fulfillment to their teachings because I am the same Word of God.

By the Will of my Father, I assumed human nature, humiliating myself to the lowliness of humanity in order to pay for all the sins committed by the human race. The only way to accomplish redemption was by offering myself in sacrifice to the Heavenly Father for all sins. For this, every one would have to follow my teachings, since I was not going to be on this earth permanently in my bodily state. I have come to invite you all to ascend to my Heavenly Kingdom; I have provided the means through my mystical body, the Church.

Flesh and blood cannot enter Heaven and the body has to die as a consequence of sin, this was established in Paradise after the original sin. I came from Heaven and even though I could have ascended in my physical body, since there was no sin in me, I chose to sacrifice my human nature, shedding my blood on the cross to justify Divine Justice and to open the way to Heaven. With my death and my resurrection, I liberated humanity from death and I assured them of the resurrection, I overcame Satan, the tempter that leads to death and I established the new creation of the children of God, in which all have to eat of my flesh and drink of my blood to be purified from sin and to deserve eternal life.

For this reason I said that the bread that I was going to give them would be my own flesh which would give them life, I made this very clear, “I am the living bread that has come down from Heaven”, so that He who eats of my flesh and drinks my blood may have eternal life. He who is baptized and believes will be saved; he who rejects me is rejecting his own salvation. He who rejects the priest anointed by my apostles is rejecting me and despising the living bread that I offer through him.
