12th Sunday after Pentecost

12th Sunday after Pentecost

When we receive bread and cup, we are taking the essence of Jesus, the self-giving life of Jesus into ourselves.  St. Augustine would hold up the bread and cup at the Eucharist and say: “See what you are. Become what you see.”  Today we would say – We become what we eat – we become Christ’s body and blood – a real presence, with life-giving power.
