Mental Prayer Support – Holy Week – 6: Eucharist – Preparing an intimate union
This is a series of 10 Christian Meditations for the Holy Week.
Today we’ll continue with Jesus during the last supper. When He instituted the Holy Eucharist. Then He promises us the Holy Spirit.
The way God chose to be very close to us.
John 26: 26-28
While they were eating, Jesus took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and giving it to his disciples said, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which will be shed on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins.
“I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh”
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always,
When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth that proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me.
John 16: 5-12
But now I am going to the one who sent me, and not one of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I told you this, grief has filled your hearts. But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes he will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation: sin, because they do not believe in me; righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me; condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.
“I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
