Friday Fast or a Feast on the Bread of Life

Fast from all food and caloric drinks until sundown.

During your fast, use the time you would spend on meals to reflect on John 6:35, 41-51 (the Gospel reading for this Sunday in churches using the Revised Common Lectionary)

What does Christ mean when he claims to be the “bread of life”?  How can we feast on such bread even while we fast?
