On Holy Thursday, the first day of the Triduum, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper, where Jesus instituted Eucharist with the washing of the feet, a sign of service. We reflect on what it means to be eucharist to one another, by serving one another.
“I don’t get anything out of going to Mass.” Someone once told me, “You get out of going to Mass what you put into it.” This makes more sense with a more informed theology of Eucharist. When we understand Eucharist, and our participation, as the public prayer of the Church, we tend to “get” more out of going to Mass.
… the great mystery of love.
The Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ is an opportunity to reflect on the gift of the Eucharist. The Church’s theology of the Eucharist presents the Eucharist as meal, and sacrifice.
