This is my Body that is for you

“For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over, took bread and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, ‘This is my Body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my Blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’” (1 COR 11: 23-25)

Our Lord gave us His Body and Blood to protect us and to keep us strong in our faith; It is not only a “remembrance” but also a re-presentation of His appearance among us and within us. When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup, we are close to Him and united with Him.

“God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
