In this chapter we are looking at the words the priest says as he distributes the host and the chalice – “The Body of Christ” and “The Blood of Christ” and how Christ is present in the bread and the wine. Talk about the transformation that takes place, during the Consecration of the bread and wine at Mass.
Link this to Easter and the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, to bring new life – and how he gives himself to us, his disciples today, under the appearance of bread and wine. We think about how Christ is present in the bread and wine.
