Jean Vanier speaks about the “Lord’s Supper.”
“The Eucharist links communal and personal nourishment because it is itself both at the same time. The Eucharist is celebration, the epitome of the communal feast, because in it we relive the mystery of Jesus’ gift of his own life for us. It is the time of thanksgiving for the whole community. There we touch the heart of the mystery of community.
But the Eucharist is also an intimate moment when each of us is transformed through a personal meeting with Jesus.”
