Eucharistic Seeing

Too often we think of Eucharist as something that is done once a week, done by a person ordained to do something to bread and wine “up there” on the altar. Only now, after two millenia of institutionally dominated Christianity, are we beginning to understand that Eucharist is a way of being that is celebrated and renewed in liturgical action. It is the offering of our solitudes (“our souls and bodies”) gathered in bread and wine where we meet and are renewed by Christ indwelling. For it is in solitude that we enter and explore our wounds through which the love of God enters and transfigures us; eucharistic solitude from which eucharistic community is born.”
