Eucharist is… a challenge to become what we receive

In receiving Holy Communion at Mass and in saying “Amen” to the declaration that this is the Body of Christ, we accept the challenge Saint Augustine told us this is: to become what we receive.  We walk as a body of people with Christ at its head and centre, showing us the way.  We walk as a body of people in which each plays a part.  We walk together as one body in which each part is needed and each valued

Eucharist is… thanksgiving

When we give thanks at Mass, the past is renewed, the present is transformed, and the future is made already present.  In this thanksgiving, hope is generated by recalling past mercies.  What we know from the past of the power and love of God gives us confidence in the continued mercy of God despite whatever may be going on in our lives to try us.

Eucharist is… sacrifice.

Remembering Jesus’ death cannot be done simply by thinking about it.  If we are to remember as we are called to remember, then we need to live as Jesus lived, think as he thought and act as he acted.  We celebrate the memory of Jesus in the Eucharistic sacrifice by offering our own lives together with Jesus for the life of the world.

Eucharist is… Food for the Journey

Eucharist is… Food for the Journey. We might do well to take a moment to thank God for all that we have received, materially and in prayer. All that we have faced in our lives we did not face alone. Always God’s strength and God’s love were at work in our hearts even when, and perhaps especially when, we did not know it at all. We can pray for those for whom the journey is hard. But we can pray too that God’s strength and love will be at work in our hearts to make us bread broken for others, bringing the nourishment of God’s love to the weary and downcast.

EUCHARIST AND SAINT ALPHONSUS 

AdoremusmultionwhiteIn the run-up to Adoremus 2018, the Maryton Carmelite convent is running a series of talks. on the 27th May Fr Tim was honoured to speak on the Eucharist and St Alphonsus. If you did not manage to attend the majority of his talk is reproduced below

Last weekend at the Royal Wedding in Windsor we had a remarkable demonstration of the power of the preached Word of God. I cannot remember a Christian sermon receiving such universal acclaim across the religious, political and social spectrums. And for me, what was most striking was the simplicity of the message, going to the heart of the Gospel of love. Bishop Michael Curry had been flown in especially for the occasion and some suggested that he stole the show and was the ‘man of the match’.

Eucharist is…Personal Vocation

Our sending out from Mass reminds us that we were changed too by our Baptism in which we received a call from God that is both universal and personal. That is our call to holiness and we are nourished in the Eucharist so that we can respond to that universal vocation by living in the way our personal vocation demands of us. With Blessed John Henry Newman, we can pray at Mass that many people will be open to the call of God in their lives.
