Taste and see: eat and drink the Lord and live…

Deer and Living Waters

The Prayer after Communion at Mass yesterday, the 6th Sunday of Easter, quietly reminded of a key purpose and end of the Mass, that we might live in Christ, by Christ, indeed as Christ.

Almighty ever-living God,
who restore us to eternal life in the Resurrection of Christ,
increase in us, we pray, the fruits of this paschal Sacrament
and pour into our hearts the strength of this saving food.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The life of the Lord is shared with us in form of Bread and Wine, but it needs to take root in us, flourish in us, if it is to sustain us and, through us be available for others too.
