The disciples recognised the Lord Jesus in the breaking of bread.

Alternate Communion Antiphon for 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

The brief antiphon above reminds of one of the central moments of our participation in the Mass – our recognition and personal encounter with the living Lord, who comes to meet with us.

He comes to us in the assembly that is his Body; the word proclaimed; the ministry of the priest acting in persona Christi; and in the Eucharist the Sacrifice of Calvary re-presented to the Father and shared with us in Holy Communion. Christ really present for real and effective engagment with us, to draw us to life.
