This Sunday, 6th June, is a moment for us to rejoice in the wonderful gift of the Eucharist. It also marks the anniversary of the first time I received Holy Communion and thus was able to participate fully in the celebration of Mass the heart of our worship and membership of the Church. On Maundy Thursday Evening we gathered to recall the Last Supper as Jesus entered on his journey to the Cross and Resurrection. This Feast is the opportunity for us reflect on the dynamic and richness of the Eucharist. Described as “the source and summit of all Christian life” we find divine life and unity of the people of God both expressed and effected. When at Mass the Eucharistic Prayer is proclaimed we find the unfolding of the central features of our Faith. In places where the Blessed Sacrament is adored and carried in procession our appreciation of this Gift is experienced by reverence in our attentive hearts and externally.
Thanks be to God,
