Here is the Bible verse in it’s context in St Luke’s Gospel:
When the hour came, he took his place at the table, and the apostles with him. He said to them, ‘I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I tell you, I will not eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.’ Then he took a cup, and after giving thanks he said, ‘Take this and divide it among yourselves; for I tell you that from now on I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.’Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, ‘This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.’ And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.
Our Lord’s gift of the Eucharist is at the heart of the Church, and can be said to form the Church. We are united in the Eucharist. In it we become what we are, and what we receive – the Holy Communion. Pray for joyful and worthy celebrations of the Eucharist.
