Eating Jesus


When Jesus is eaten, people learn to give themselves away, trusting that in the sharing of their lives they participate in the divine, eternal life of sharing. They learn to make their movements a source of nurture, their lives and homes sites of hospitality, and their work an art of caring and celebration. When people fully participate in the Eucharist the world ceases to signify as a material possession and instead becomes a gift to be given and shared.
