Words for a Holy Meal

I have heard these words from those who were officiating at Holy Communion, but for some reason had not realized that they were from scripture until recently. They are beautiful and true.

“Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf.” 1 Corinthians 10:16-17

  1. That is EXACTLY what I needed for our Maundy Thursday service! Thanks for the reminder! The phrase “participation” in the body and blood of Christ takes on special meaning this week.
