EUCHARIST is the final sacrament drawing us into the life of Christ and the Church and brings us full circle. Christ attracted a person to be a follower from the beginning of their journey. Through Him the desire to change happened. The promise of Jesus to remain personally with the Church draws a person towards not only change and living a new life with Him but to receiving everything that Christ is; to becoming everything that Christ wants us to be in this world.
Time began to be set aside in the community to offer thanks for these gifts received.
Through the grace of Baptism and Confirmation each of us is brought to testify to God-with-us.
In the sacrament of Eucharist, God-with-us is the act of faith called for from each person. It is this sacrament of Eucharist that meets the resistance in us by inviting us to surrender our hands, our feet, our minds, our hearts, our thoughts, our will, everything that makes us who we are, to Christ to use as is needed in our world. It ensures that no stone is left unturned in our lives. It is where the sacrificial giving of all is asked.
Not only this but if “we are to receive who we are” “become what you receive” the daily challenge of this sacrament is to testify that it is no longer “I” that live but “Christ” that lives in me.
