Are you going up for communion?

Maricourt Chaplaincy posts a wonderful reflection on the nature of Communion 

"Yesterday, the Catholic Church (and some traditions with the Anglican communion) celebrated…well…food! A completely different kind of food. It is sometimes called Eucharist, the blessed sacrament or it is more commonly referred to as communion. The feast is known by its Latin name “Corpus Christi”, meaning body of Christ. It celebrates the belief that the bread, when consecrated at the Mass, actually, truly and really becomes the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ. Not just a symbol of Jesus or representing him. But it actually is him."
