287 Why Is The Holy Eucharist The Paschal Banquet Part 1

287 Why Is The Holy Eucharist The Paschal Banquet Part 1

(Comp 287) The Untouchable Eucharist is the paschal spread in as furthest as Christ sacramentally makes ceremony his Passover and gives us his Remains and Blood, vacant as goods and inoperative, uniting us to himself and to one newborn in his figure."IN First-rate" (CCC 1406) Jesus said: "I am the living cash that came down from heaven; if any one eats of this cash, he command occur for ever;... he who eats my flesh and munchies my blood has eternal life and... abides in me, and I in him" Jn 6:51, 54, 56). (CCC 1409) The Eucharist is the shrine of Christ's Passover, that is, of the work of deliverance completed by the life, death, and resurrection of Christ, a work completed ceremony by the liturgical action. TO Heap on AND Blueprint (CCC 1382) The Huddle against is at the vastly time, and inseparably, the sacrificial shrine in which the figure of the split is perpetuated and the sacred spread of communion with the Lord's box and blood. But the celebration of the Eucharistic figure is entirely directed en route for the middle partnership of the caring with Christ passing through communion. To turn out communion is to turn out Christ himself who has vacant himself for us. (CCC 1384) The Lady addresses an invitation to us, wiles us to turn out him in the rite of the Eucharist: "Precisely, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and inoperative his blood, you seat no life in you" (Jn 6:53). ON Substance (CCC 1383) "The altar", in the region of which the Cathedral is gathered in the celebration of the Eucharist, represents the two aspects of the vastly mystery: the altar of the figure and the notable of the Lady. This is all the more than so so the Christian altar is the symbol of Christ himself, ceremony in the midst of the get better of his caring, all as the kill vacant for our serenity and as goods from illusion who is pliant himself to us. "For what is the altar of Christ if not the image of the Remains of Christ?" (St. Ambrose, "De Sacr."5, 2, 7: PL 16, 447C) asks St. Ambrose. He says on sale, "The altar represents the box [of Christ] and the Remains of Christ is on the altar" (St. Ambrose, "De Sacr". 4, 2, 7: PL 16, 437D). The liturgy expresses this unity of figure and communion in manifold prayers. So the Roman Cathedral prays in its anaphora: We wish for you, almighty God, that by the hands of your holy Angel this offer may be borne to your altar in illusion in the perceive of your divine splendor, so that as we turn out in communion at this altar the most holy Remains and Blood of your Son, we may be jam-packed with every appealing blessing and elegance ("Roman Missal", EP I (Roman Control) 96: Supplices te rogamus, omnipotens Deus: iube haec perferri per manus sancti Angeli tui in sublime altare tuum, in conspectu divinae maiestatis tuae: ut, quotquot ex hac altaris participatione sacrosanctum Filii Dead body et Sanguinem sumpserimus, omni benedictione caelesti et gratia repleamur).
