Continued from last week: The Holy Mass - 13 …

“Take this, all of you and eat it: this is My body which will be given for you.”
“Take this, all of you, and drink from it: this is the cup of My blood, the blood of the new and everlasting Covenant. Do this in memory of Me.”

The consecration of the Mass should be seen in light of the Gospel readings from John 14-16. These are some of the most beautiful chapters in the New Testament. We are called not only to service, but also to consecrate our lives to God. Jesus loves us. “I am indeed going to prepare a place for you, and then I shall come back to take you with me, that where I am you also may be” (John 14:3). “The Paraclete, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will instruct you in everything, and remind you of all that I told you” (John 14:26). These are but a few of the consolations Jesus gave to His Apostles. This knowledge of His love is a prelude to the consecration of bread and wine. As bread and wine are transformed into Jesus’ body and blood, there is a spiritual transformation in each person attending. When the consecration takes place, there is a tremendous sweep of Divine energy through the congregation. At this most powerful moment the Holy Spirit would cleanse people.

Of all the Sacraments, the Eucharist is the climax because here Jesus Christ, the perfect image of the Farther gives Himself unto eternal life. Here He conquers in that eternal NOW of self-immolation on the Cross for love of us individually all sin and death that exist within us. Here we must experience a sharing in His glorious Resurrection as his Spirit dissolves in us our lack of love for God and for neighbor.

At this point the Lord directs us to bring to the Eucharist those we need to forgive. As the priest held up the host during the consecration we see the face of each person on the Host. We ask the Lord to heal the relationships because they too were part of His body.

…to be continued next week.
