Job Announcement
Why are parishioners pledging? Here's what
Today we celebrate the Trinity’s work
for our salvation. God the Father is the
beginning. The work continues with the
sending of the Son, Jesus, the Christ,
who lives among us as the way, the
truth, and the life. Then the Spirit of
Truth comes to lead us to the complete
truth. Out of love, God sanctifies us
in his family. Holy wisdom delights in
the Trinity’s great work on our behalf.
We nourish ourselves with word and
sacrament as we follow Jesus’ way to the
Father. Maranatha!

Bread, Cup, Body, Blood
by Paul Turner
Bread and wine become the Body and Blood of Christ
during the eucharistic prayer at Mass. The Holy Spirit works
this miracle in the presence of the faithful, who join the
priest’s prayer in silence and song.
Belief in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist is
central to Catholic faith. In the past some have doubted this
belief, but the church has always responded with unwavering
conviction, founded on the Bible. “This is my body.” … “This
is my blood” (Matthew 26:26, 28). “The bread that I will give
is my flesh for the life of the world” (John 6:51). “My flesh is
true food and my blood is true drink” (John 6:55). “The one
who eats this bread will live forever” (John 6:58). “As often as
you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s
death until he comes” (1 Cor 11:26).
The word “bread” in these scriptures does not diminish
our faith that the bread is the body of Christ. The liturgy
also uses “bread and cup” to refer to the Body and Blood of
Christ. The third memorial acclamation has us sing, “When
we eat this Bread and drink this Cup.” Eucharistic Prayer IV
prays for “all who partake of this one Bread and one Chalice.”
The first Eucharistic Prayer for Masses with Children offers “the bread that gives us life, and the cup that saves us.”
The Lamb of God accompanies a ritual the sacramentary calls
“the breaking of the bread.” Some of our hymns also refer to
bread and wine, but in the context of the Mass the meaning
remains true to Catholic teaching. What we eat and drink is
the Body and Blood of Christ.
Copyright © 2012 Resource Publications, Inc., 160 E. Virginia St. #170, San
Jose, CA 95112, (408) 286-8505.
When we receive Eucharist, our response to the invitation
“Body of Christ” is “Amen.” That response is an act of faith.
We are saying in effect, “Yes, I believe that what I receive is
the presence of Jesus.” As Catholics we believe that the bread
becomes the body of Christ during the eucharistic celebration.
Needless to say, if we do not believe, then we should not
receive. The care we show in following the proper procedure
in receiving is our way of demonstrating our respect and
Jesus said, “Take and eat” and “Take and drink.” The option
of receiving from the cup is once again common practice.
Some prefer not receiving from the cup for one reason or
another and that is always a choice. It obviously should be
your choice if you are sick or not feeling well. However, it is
appropriate that every person receiving Eucharist comes to
one of the cup ministers and proclaims their faith in the Real
Presence of Jesus in cup by a simple bow of the head after
the response “Amen” to the
minister’s words: “The Blood
of Christ.” If you choose not to
receive from the cup for some
reason, you may stay in line behind the person in front of you
in order to express your faith in
Jesus’ presence under the form
of wine.
Congratulations to all the first
communion participants who
will receive the Sacrament of
the Eucharist on May 21st and
