The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one bread. (I Cor 10.16-17)
Before his arrest, Jesus gathered his twelve disciples for a last supper. Sharing a meal together with friends whether at home or out is a precious time of togetherness which is only just beginning to come back into our lives. In Catholic countries, today’s Feast of Corpus Christi is more of a party than it is in England, but Holy Communion, the Eucharist, is worth celebrating. Jesus shared himself with us in an act of love, one that we can remember and be nourished by every day as we eat and drink the fruits of creation. As Christians or simply as humans, we differ in many ways, yet need reminding that we all feast at the same table.
