LitBit Commentary – Rowan Williams on the Eucharist 9

LitBits Logo - 2“In the Eucharist we are at the centre of the world: we are where Christ, the Son, gives his life to his Father in the Spirit.  And in the Eucharist we are at the end of the world: we are seeing how the world’s calling is fulfilled in advance; we are seeing ourselves and our world as they really are, contemplating them in the depths of God, finding their meaning in relation to God.  And the job of a Christian is constantly trying to dig down to that level of reality, and to allow gratitude, repentance and transformation to well up from that point.  ‘With you is the fountain of life’, says the psalm; and it is that fountain that we drink from in Holy Communion.”

Rowan Williams, Being Christian, p.59
