PROVINCIAL POST: GOING TO COMMUNION PDF Print E-mail

.

When I was a kid, without giving it a whole lot of thought, we used to speak of “going to communion.” It amounted to leaving one’s pew at “communion time” to get the wafer. If that sounds crude, how’s this: we were always interested when the Church gave out stuff: ashes on Ash Wednesday, palms on Palm Sunday, and “communion,” alas, at every Mass. So much for the commodification of the liturgy.

Who knew that “going to communion” had untold depths of meaning? Of all the theological developments that helped prepare the liturgical renewal of the Second Vatican Council, the restoration and subsequent enrichment of the understanding of communion was of the first order of importance.  There was, to begin with, the connection between communion and life. The biblical teaching is oriented in this direction: where there is life rich in relationship, there is found life in the full. Where there is isolation, life seeps away.

PROVINCIAL POST PDF Print E-mail

.

When we read in the Book of Genesis that God is demanding that Abraham sacrifice his son Isaac, we are rightly incredulous.  Are you kidding me?  This is Isaac, the late-born son of Abraham and Sarah, the child of the promise.  The killing of Isaac can only mean going back on God’s promise, insofar as the promise is inextricably tied to the act of generation.  How can God require something that directly contradicts his plan for the re-generation of his people?  As this terrible scene unfolds, with Abraham slowly ascending Mount Moriah with his son – wood for the fire and knife in hand – the human sacrifice is averted at the last moment, and the radical substance of Abraham’s faith is both revealed and rewarded.   He receives back his son.
