We started with the year of the Eucharist-Eucharist, gift of Christ to his Church. In addition to the topic and outline can be found a few tabs of reflection and a few sheets of text, a few tabs of bibliography, with the purpose of pay and reflect on a few biblical texts in order to continue this watchful, deep, reading don this began the preliminaries. The month of October will end the year of the Eucharist, with the Synod on the Eucharist. It’s been a year since the Pope Juan Pablo II, announced, on June 13 last year during the celebration of the solemnity of Corpus Christi. The Eucharistic year will run around the Catholic world with interest.
The dioceses have organized Conference, retreats, workshops, on the Eucharist. The parishes are committed to improve the liturgical Eucharistic Celebration, following the advice of the Pope. On a personal level there has been an interest in improving the Eucharist celebrations, with more active participation and above all a more Evangelistic commitment. Many books have been published in this year, and many articles have been written about the Eucharist. The Jubilee year of 2000 was a year of grace, this year is also a year of grace for the whole Church. It is a not so spectacular year, grace is not measured by external signs, but by the inmates.
On the other hand, have passed 40 years, from the beginning of the liturgical reform, any reform has been a gift from God to the Church. If we look back and the present, we observe that the liturgical celebrations are much more participatory. Years of the Posconciliar have left a very positive experience, but it is still a long way to go, so that the Eucharist is really the Centre of Christian life. Today refers to culture Eucharistic, that we need to assimilate and to publicize. The pastoral has a challenge, and we an obligation to review our participation in the Eucharistic celebrations and our Eucharistic life. The Eucharist is the river of water lives that springs from the open side of Christ on the cross.- and that river waters the heart of the Church with the word and the sacraments. The Eucharist of Thanksgiving for this essence as its name indicates. The Eucharist has the strength infuse into the heart Christian Eucharistic spirituality, and to convert to the Christian in a Eucharistic supplier, and do a Eucharistic culture advocate. Need to make it so, who participates in the celebration does not get into varnish on the surface of the celebration, but who must live the mystery celebrated. The mystery is a gift of God to the Church, and who lives the mystery reaches to drink the living water, and fully satisfies thirst. Many Christians are living water alongside a d River and left to pass water. They don’t know or don’t want to move closer to this living water, and let it trascurra. Others instead dig deep wells in distant lands to quench their thirst, or constructed cracked tanks to save water, and water is lost, and curfew empties the cistern. We have an example: the Samaritan woman going to the well for water, and is the source of living water.
