Many love it and others don't, but we almost lost it all together. Just in time for All Souls Day, The National Catholic Reporter has Sister Suzanne Toolan's story behind her hymn, "I am the bread of life."
Her memoir is here.
The song is copyrighted. The scriptural reference:
Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe. All whom the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day. For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day."
