It's a Celebration

I was visiting another church this weekend, and the deacon ended the mass by saying:

"Go in peace ... this Celebration of the Eucharist has ended."

I'm used to hearing "The Mass has ended, go in peace," or something to that effect, but I really liked that Deacon's perspective.

In one short phrase, he reminded us that the Mass is really one 
big celebration of the Body and Blood of Christ.   

Something I sometimes take for granted.

God Bless.

Michael, I think in the deacon emphasizing the celebration of the Eucharist we can be reminded that Eucharist means thanksgiving and should always maintain a grateful attitude in all we do. Great post!

Thank you both for stopping by and commenting!

Anne, I like your added spin to the Deacon's comment!

God Bless.
