The Pope’s Intentions for August
Universal: That refugees, forced by violence to abandon their homes, may find a generous welcome and the protection of their rights.
For Evangelisation: That Christians in Oceania may joyfully announce the faith to all the people of that region.
The Eucharist is not only the memorial of the death and resurection of the Lord, but also a sign and foretaste of the final unity of the Kingdom of God. From celebration to celebration, God’s pilgrim people advances towards the great banquet in heaven, ‘when all the elect will be seated at the table of the kingdom’. It is the Lord of Glory who comes to us in the Eucharist, and we anticipate there ‘the joys of the age to come’.
We celebrate together the communion we already share, but we are also very aware of the imperfection of our unity, even among Catholics gathered to share together the one Bread of Life. We come forward to receive Holy Communion as a foretaste of our future unity as God’s pilgrim people, and our ‘Amen’ should include a real commitment to the fullness of that unity.
It is as well to remember, in the pain, sorrow and frustration of our journey together as fellow Christians, yearning for unity and yet still disunited, that fullness of communion is a gift of God’s grace, and that we will have to ‘wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ’. This does not mean, of course, that we simply sit and wait. God wills to work through us, and the Eucharist consecrates those who take part in it to be instruments and ambassadors of reconciliaton.
