Ask A Father

Q: Hey Ambrose! Why Doesn't The Lord Rain Down Manna On Us Like He Did To Our Ancestors?
A: "You asked me why the Lord God does not now rain down manna as he did on our ancestors' people. If you reflect, you will realize that he does, even daily, rain down manna from heaven on his servants. In fact, a corporeal manna is found today in many places, but it is not now a matter of such great wonder, because what is perfect has come. This is the Bread from heaven, the Body from a virgin, of which the gospel sufficiently tells us. How much more excellent this is than what went before! Those who ate that manna, or bread, are dead, but he who eats this bread will live forever......Whoever experiences this downpour of divine Wisdom is delighted, and needing no other food, lives not on bread alone but on every word of God."

Gee, Thanks Ambrose! I don't know how I missed that. I'll have to reflect more from now on. But first, I'm gonna go to Mass and receive this wonderful new manna that is the Body and Blood of Christ!
