Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Caro mea vere est cibus,
et sanguis meus vere est potus.
Qui manducat carnem meam
et bibit meum sanguinem
in me manet et ego in illo.
Sicut misit me vivens Pater,
et qui manducat me
et ipse vivet propter me.

(New International Version Bible translation, St John's Gospel, Ch. 6)

My flesh is real food and my blood is real drink.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
Just as the living Father sent me, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.
