Hunger and Thirst

Every human person is hungry. The human heart experiences this hunger. Men and Women are created with a sense of incompleteness, with an eternal longing. This longing sometimes masks itself as desire or loneliness, but ultimately, all these pangs humanity experiences reveal a deep longing and hunger for God. Jesus fills emptiness and satisfies hunger. In the scriptures, he reveals himself as the bread from heaven. God humbles himself and becomes the bread of life that can fill and satisfy. This revelation of the Eucharist proves to be a hard teaching for many, and Jesus loses followers over it, but his disciples stay even though they struggle to understand. They do not turn to anyone else because they know that Jesus alone “has the words to eternal life.” Only Jesus fills the hunger of the human person.

JOHN 4:13-14

"Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again; but whoever drinks the water I shall give will never thirst; the water I shall give will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
