The Institution of the Eucharist

5th Luminous Mystery of the Rosary

Scriptural Rosary      

When the hour came he took his place at table, and the apostles with him. And he said to them, "I have longed to eat this passover with you before I suffer; because, I tell you, I shall not eat it again until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God."

Then, taking a cup, he gave thanks and said, "Take this adn share it among you, because from now on, I tell you, I shall not drink wine until the kingdom of God comes."

Then he took some bread, and when he had given thanks, broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body which will be given for you; do this as a memorial of me." He did the same with the cup after supper, ane said, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood which will be poured out for you." (Lk 22, 14-20)

Meditation: Jesus, "your state was divine, yet you did not cling to equality with God but emptied yourself to assume the condition of a slave, and became as men are, and being as all men are, you were humbler yet, even to accepting death, death on a cross" (Phil 2, 6). When you washed your disciples' feet before the Last Supper you gave us an example so that we may copy what you have done. Through the sacrifice of the Mass you give yourself to us, body, blood, soul and divinity. Through the gift of the Eucharist may we live your new commandment: "Love one another; just as I have loved you, you also must love one another" (Jn 13, 35).

Eternal Father, we thank you for the gift of your Son. In contemplating Him, we come to know you, all good and loving Father.  I trust in your loving Providence for my life.
Mary, my Mother, help me to reverence your Son Jesus, truly present in all the tabernacles of the world. By the love we have for one another, may everyone know we are your Son's disciples.

Our Father ... Hail Mary (x10) ... Glory be ... O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell and lead all souls to heaven especially those who have most need of thy mercy.

Christ's Institution of the Eucharist - We contemplate the sublime gift we possess as Catholics of union with Christ, as we eat His body and drink His blood in this glorious sacrament. May we long to sit at His feet day by day and may our Church be filled with prayer and adoration for our glorious friend, spouse and Saviour.

He took bread, gave thanks, broke it and gave it to them, saying 'This is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.'

Track - Holy Eucharist by Zealous (feat. Fr. Stan Fortuna CFR)

"And in this union with Jesus and the Father, something amazing begins to take place in our humanity: our flesh and our spirit find a new relationship; we discover a new capacity to love selflessly like Jesus has loved us, loving each other with a new quality of self-gift, we're able to give ourselves in total freedom for the good of others, we are able to open our hearts out to the wonder of the world around us, but in such a way that we are constantly aware of God's loving presence within us. And this is really what the meaning of the Eucharist is - being brought alive first of all by the intimate love that Jesus has for our humanity, uniting himself to us in our woundedness but also our great capacity to be free and to love like He loves. And then, through the presence of Jesus within us, mysteriously He opens our spirit up to the love of the Father."

3 2us by Archbishop Vincent Nichols      

"Today we recall the Last Supper of the Lord with his disciples and there are two things that are prominent, but they're very connected. One is the washing of the disciples' feet and the second is the giving of Himself in the bread and wine of their supper which, in our Mass, becomes His Body and Blood."

Sunday Evangelium with Father Andrew Pinsent

in Year A      

"Today we celebrate the institution of the Eucharist, a feast still known by its Latin name of Corpus Christi, the Body of Christ. This is the day in the liturgical year when we celebrate the most extraordinary gift that God has given to us: God in His love and mercy gives us Himself, under the appearances of bread and wine."

in Year B      

"So why does God give us the Eucharist as a sacrifice as well as a sacrament? One way of answering this question is to recall that God ultimately wants us to bring us to heaven, where, as St John tells us, “We shall be like Him.” Now the attribute that we most naturally associate with God is power, but the attribute that is most central to God's knowledge of Himself is love. “God is love,” as St John tells us. So becoming 'like God' does not simply mean sharing in the power of God, but most essentially sharing in the love of God, of loving as God loves. Now love is intimately connected with sacrifice, the notion of a sacrifice being associated with an outpouring of something that is precious to oneself for the sake of another person. So in the Mass, God gives us not only the opportunity to participate in the strength of God by means of a sacrament, but also in the love of God by means of a sacrifice. More specifically, in the Mass we participate in the perfect sacrifice, that of Christ on the cross in which the Son of God gave His life to save us."
