These words have been said for 2,000 years and they have comforted people.
Personally I love to eat and there is nothing better than a glass of wine and a hunk of bread and very often I eat cheese with it; brie, English Stilton, or some Port Salut, ummm, makes me want to go and get some now.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion, also called the Eucharist, is very earthy, incarnational. Jesus takes basic things in life such as bread and wine and tells his followers that when we eat of this bread and drink of this wine we are remembering Jesus and making his Presence felt again in the community.
This is truly awesome.
Drink of it all of you
Jesus is known to us in a meal
