The second of three parts in my series of meditations on the text of the mass is up at the The Living Church’s Covenant Blog. Check it out here.
We are not given crumbs. We are given a full meal. And not just any meal. We come for the foretaste of the Wedding Supper of the Lamb, the bread of heaven and the cup of salvation. Here, at the Lord’s table, we receive our Lord, truly and really, under the forms of bread and wine. We partake in Jesus’ life and death and resurrection.
