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.

German.png German translation

Mein Fleisch ist wahrhaft eine Speise
und mein Blut ist wahrhaft ein Trank.
Wer mein Fleisch ißt
und mein Blut trinkt,
bleibt in mir und ich in ihm.
Wie mich der lebendige Vater gesandt hat,
so wird, wer mich ißt,
auch selbst leben wegen mir.
