The Eucharist, food for the journey

One often thinks of a journey as one from here to there. Regarding the Eucharist, perhaps it is more appropriate to think of the journey as going from who one is now to who one can become, from dead to living, from seed to fruit, from infant to adult, from homeless to one come home, from me to Christ. In other words, it is not a journey of going, but of becoming, and so the food, the Bread of Life, is not simply of sustenance but of transformation.
