Love this! My husband and I also entered the Church (almost) together, and for us, also, the Eucharist was the "central hunger". John 6 is now one of my favorite passages. Thank you for posting this.

In Catechism class we cover numerous food miracles: Manna, quail, Elijah and Elisha's miracles, the wine at Cana, and the loves and fishes.

By the time we get to the Last Supper, the kids are familiar with this history of food miracles, and have no problem with Jesus, who unlike Moses or Elijah is God Himself, working the miracle anticipated by John 6.

In John 6, Jesus does not correct their understanding of "eat my flesh" when many left him, which strongly implies that that they understood him correctly. I'm confident Jesus handled it in the best way possible, but I wonder why he did not offer further explanation. Perhaps it was just too much to explain, but the teaching had to be broached sometime? I guess it would be something pretty difficult to reveal gradually.
