The directive Jesus gives in Scripture is affirmed each time we celebrate the Eucharist.
“Do this in remembrance of me,” Jesus says. Christ himself models the “this” we’re supposed to do when we eat and drink. We live as He lived, and we love as He loved.
In a world where lives and love are overcast by arrogance, pride, selfishness, fear, anger, and incivility, we have a model of light who renounced all of these so that all whom he encountered may have full life and may know true love. As we sup, may we recall Jesus’ bold model and do the same.
