He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood,
hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day.
For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed.
He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood,
abideth in me, and I in him.
John 6:55-56

"Just as the Father who has life sent me and I have life because of the Father,
so the one who feeds on me will have life because of me."
John 6:57

Then many of his disciples who were listening said, "This is hard; who can accept it?"
John 6:60

"But there are some of you who do not believe."
Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe
and the one who would betray him.
John 6:64

As a result of this, many [of] his disciples returned to their former way of life
and no longer accompanied him.
John 6:66

My Poor Dear friend,You are amongst the group who would reject Jesus in John 6:66
Although I doubt it is entirely your fault.It started with Luther and Calvin being mislead by the devil.

There are an incredible amount of Miracles our Lord works through the Eucharist to prove it is really Him.

Mar 4:34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed: and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, abideth in me, and I in him. John 6:55-56

Joh 6:27 Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.

Mary had a baby...Jesus...After 30 years, Jesus was and looked 30 years old...He had human flesh...You could cut it and make it bleed...

Had Jesus not been killed, his human body would have 'perished' from old age...

Joh 6:28 Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Joh 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

They ask a question...Jesus answered them and gave them some knowledge...Being good Jews, they weren't interested in knowledge...They wanted physical proof...

Joh 6:30 They said therefore unto him, What sign showest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work?

They couldn't deter Jesus...They didn't accept the last miracle so he gives them some more knowledge, with a little parable thrown in...He knew the fakers wouldn't get it...

Joh 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.

If this is literal, every thing I posted beyond this has to be literal...

Joh 6:35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

There you go...You Catholics haven't been hungry or thirsty since you've come to Jesus...No more breakfast, lunch or dinner, or Little Debbie's Snacks...No more water, beer or booze...

Apparently the only real Catholics are the very skinny people out there...You still hungry??? What did you do wrong???

Joh 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever:

Whatever Catholic takes a bite out of Jesus never makes it to a funeral home...Now, that's good news...

The fact is, Jesus threw in the literal truth of this parable to see who would ignore it...

Joh 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

Joh 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Joh 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

That's the way to heaven...But Jesus knew he was bugging these infidels...That's why he said,

Joh 6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

And Jesus says under his breath, "if that didn't get you, maybe this will"...

Joh 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?

And then Jesus pulls the veil out from over their eyse to see if they would then catch on and tells them,

Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth (zōopoieō, make alive, give life) ; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

It's the spirit that raises you up, not flesh...

End of parable...
