Readings for today’s Mass
. . . on the night he was handed over, he took bread and, after he had given thanks, broke it and said, "This is my Body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me. You know the rest.
Ours is an ancient tradition with deep roots that stretch back to the beginning. So much of the foundations of the Church can be found in the earliest primary sources. It is good to remember and celebrate all that the Church has become.
Another remarkable feature in the Letter to the Corinthians, is something Paul was not pleased with and neither should we. Paul writes: I do not praise the fact that your meetings are doing more harm than good. First of all, I hear that when you meet as a Church there are divisions among you, It would seem that Paul could be writing to the Church of 2018. For us too, when we meet as a Church, there are great divisions among us. Little has changed.
All the more important, then, that we put energy into that which unites us. Even with all the division and disagreement in the Church, we still stand together to celebrate the body and blood of Christ. Whether you prefer a pre-Vatican Mass to the post Vatican expression, what is most important is the same either way. Putting Church politics aside, whatever we prefer, let us always do it in remembrance of Jesus.
