Pastor's Reflection from June 11th

"As we saw earlier, occasionally when Saint Augustine was giving the Eucharist to a communicant, instead of saying, "The body of Christ," he would say: "Receive what you are." That puts things correctly. What is supposed to happen at the Eucharist is that we, the congregation, by sacrificing the things that divide us, should become the body and blood of Christ. More so than the bread and wine, we the people, are meant to be changed, to be transubstantiated. The Eucharist, as sacrifice, asks us to become the bread of brokenness and the chalice of vulnerability",

(from Our One Great Act Of Fidelity, Ronald Rolheiser).
