    Lord Jesus Christ, Redeemer of the world, you have shouldered the burden of our weakness and borne our sufferings in your own passion and death. Hear this prayer for our sick brothers and sister whom you have redeemed. Strengthen their hope of salvation and sustain them in body and soul, for you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

    God, our shelter and our strength, you listen in love to the cry of your people: hear the prayers we offer for our departed brothers and sisters. Cleanse them of their sins and grant them the fullness of redemption. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    REFLECTION ON THE WORD OF GOD Today we hear how Abram encounters Melchizedek, “king of Salem . . . and a priest of God Most High” (Genesis 14:18). Melchizedek appears nowhere else in scripture, but is nonetheless significant. Psalm 110 declares of the great King David, “You are a priest forever, in the line of Melchizedek,” a description later given (in the letter to the Hebrews) to Christ as High Priest. Early Christians saw in Melchizedek’s bread and wine the bread and wine of the Eucharist; Paul’s account of the Last Supper (in today’s second reading) is the oldest one in scripture. In the Gospel, Luke describes Je- sus providing bread for a crowd in words similar to Paul’s, words still used by the Church: Jesus takes bread, gives thanks, breaks it. Together, these three readings reveal how Christian priesthood, Christ’s Real Pres- ence, and the call to serve those in need are all found in the gift of the Eucharist.

    DO THIS IN REMEMBRANCE OF ME We are familiar with the instructions that Jesus gives his disciples at the Last Supper. But what exactly is it that we are to do in remembrance of Jesus? One answer focuses on the “institution narrative” found in the Eucharistic Prayers: we are to consecrate the bread and wine, changing them, by the power of the Holy Spirit, into the Body and Blood of Christ. This is true; but let’s think about what it takes to actually do this, as the Church has done for almost two thousand years:  We are to remember Jesus—to remember Jesus, the Word of God in human form. To do this, we need

    that other word of God, given in a different form: the words of the scriptures.  We need to assemble to do this. The Last Supper is a communal meal with Jesus. In his letter to the Co-

    rinthians, Paul describes actions done within a group, actions that began with that communal meal with Jesus. We gather as today’s disciples and continue that group activity in our assemblies.

     We need to find a way to assemble with some degree of order. We need leaders. We need preachers to preach the Word, we need presiders to repeat the actions of Jesus, persons who are “ordered”— ordained—for preaching and for the consecration of the bread and wine.

     CHURCH, EUCHARIST, AND THOSE IN NEED There is a saying: “The Church makes the Eucharist, and the Eucharist makes the Church.” In the Eucha- ristic celebration, we find Christ truly present in the consecrated bread and wine. We also find him in the as- sembly, the scriptures, and the preacher-presider—everything we do to “do this,” and in doing “this,” we be- come the Body of Christ. Our Eucharistic remembrance of Jesus is a living sacramental memory that trans- forms us, too. We receive Communion to live in communion with Christ and one another, to become the “real presence” of Christ in the world. We do what the disciples did: we feed those in need with the love and com- passion with which Christ feeds us. Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc.


    THE EUCHARIST: Just as the bread, which is made from the earth, when God is invoked is no longer common bread but the Eucharist, both earthly and heavenly, so our bodies, after we have received the Eucharist, are no longer corrupti- ble, since they hold the hope of the resurrection. —St. Irenaeus
