prayer diary Friday 5 May 3017 (Day of Discipline and Self-denial)

Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you'. 
John 6.53

Reflection 
The 3rd century bishop of Carthage, St Cyprian, said 'outside the Church there is no salvation.' His words were spoken in another context, but there is a wider truth to them. Christ declared that our salvation was linked to the reception of his body and blood in the Eucharist. And the only manner in which they may be received is through being part of his body, the Church.
