Jn 6: 44-51

No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life.

I am the bread of life.Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

Bread of Life

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him, and I will raise him on the last day.” Jesus tells us that, in order to join him in heaven, we must accept the heavenly life he offers us. In short, we must know, love, and serve his Father.

How?

Two Ignatian insights might help: Finding God in All Things and Magis. If we can find God in everything we see and do then we will keep our eyes, and heart, on what really matters. If we can seek out Christ in the Sacraments and in the poor he will lead us to his Father. In striving for the Magis, the more, we will be constantly trying to maximize our time with God, not by doing more, but giving and surrendering more of ourselves to God so that we might receive the Life Jesus offers us.
