Session Four: At Home This Week
Our session this week was centered on the Eucharistic Prayer and the consecration of the bread and wine.
At Mass, we say "Thank You" to God!
Eucharist means "Thanksgiving", and our participation in the Eucharist is our way way giving thanks to God! We thank Him for his sacrifice, for the blessings in our lives, and for his unconditional acceptance of us, no matter what we have done or will do in the future.
We honor Jesus by remembering him!
When we remember something we keep it alive and fresh in our minds. Having memories is part of what makes us who we are! It is also what keeps the people and events that have passed with us. Jesus said, "Do this in memory of me." Eucharist is how we remember Jesus!
Jesus becomes present in the bread and the wine!
