14th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Changes on the way

The first is that the communal response in preparation for Holy Communion is now replaced by the normal procedure. As you approach wearing your face covering, the Celebrant shows the Host and says ‘The Body of Christ’ to which you reply ‘Amen’, you then step to the side and consume the Host.

From St Thomas More’s Treatise on The Holy Eucharist

“Let us not lose this time therefore, suffer not this occasion to slip ,which we can little tell whether ever we shall get it again or never. Let us endeavour ourself to keep him still and like the two disciples of Emmaus – tarry/ stay with us good Lord.”

Written in the Tower of London
