The One who feeds will become our food.
I have to admit...I am a primarily intellectual Christian. However I cannot deny the power of the transformation of the intellectual into the "heart," or the personal relationship with Jesus, that is necessary for the Christian faith journey. It has always been a beautiful reality for me that the Catholic Church can meet both my intellectual and spiritual hunger. That reality, I admit, took time for me to embrace.
The spiritual and physical realities were never meant to be separate. Ours is the faith of 'incarnation,' in which spiritual truths are revealed in the flesh. We can see this in the birth of Jesus, He comes to us and sleeps in a manger, a word meaning "to eat." The very place where the baby Jesus laid in the manger ("to eat") in the physical was where God met earth and revealed that we would eat of His Body later as a fulfillment of our salvation. He truly becomes our sustenance, our food. Much of Jesus' teachings revolve around the feeding of people, or at a meal. Why should our evangelization be any different?
Hunger is a basic need..our Lord knows this...we see it again and again in His teaching. Let's meet our hungering culture with Truth and Goodness.
