Foretaste of Heaven’s first interactive/live streamed-lecture/presentation, “Eucharist: Sacred Meal, Holy Sacrifice: Essential Service” dives into sacramentality in general, the Sacrament of Eucharist, Eucharistic theology, basic liturgical theology and the liturgy in which Eucharist (Mass) is celebrated. The workshop focuses on how Eucharist is often misunderstood as simply an object that one receives and helps all who are participating to better understand Eucharist as a multi-dimensional action, that indeed includes reception of the Body and Blood of Christ, but also so much more! The presentation first looks at sacramentality and helps all who are participating to start to think in a “sacramental way.” It then presents the basic liturgical theology of the Church and what we are actually doing and participating in when we celebrate Eucharist. Finally, the presentation “breaks open” the theology of the two most significant dimensions of the full action of the Eucharistic liturgy: a “sacred meal” and a “holy sacrifice.” By understanding the theology of both of these dimensions of the action of Eucharist, those participating in the presentation will gain an excellent understanding on why and how Eucharist, both theologically and just plain logically, must lead to service and they will undoubtedly, the next time they participate in the Eucharistic liturgy, go forth and enter into some type of service. The presenter of this interactive lecture/presentation is John Gaffney.
