Get the Real Life

        At morning Mass, the priest started the Eucharistic Prayer with "In memory of his death and resurrection, we offer you, Father, this life-giving bread, this saving cup."  I was instantly hit by the two adjectives, "life-giving" and "saving."  Indeed, the Holy Eucharist, if properly understood and believed in, has the saving power and can give us the real life.  This is not our present life in the world, but life everlasting with God in heaven.
