We all have our favorite restaurant, or maybe a favorite home-cooked meal. It's comfort food that makes us feel good. It warms us, it fills us up, it satisfies.
As St. Paul reiterates in his letter to the Corinthians the details of the Last Supper, we hear our invitation to “take and eat”, “take and drink”. Christians believe Jesus is offering us that nourishment through His most holy body and blood through the Lord’s Supper.
Christians also believe the opportunity for giving thanks and receiving nourishment through the Holy Eucharist is offered to all the faithful. It is not contained to one period, one neighborhood, one social status. Divisions such as these go against the tenets of the Christian faith – that all believers are all one in the body of Christ.
Jesus extends His invitation to all – the call to participate in His life – to enjoy the warmth and satisfying feeling of fulfillment in all that His Father provides.
