Mass in a Moment
By Margaret Bick
Gathering for Eucharist
In the celebration of the Eucharist
God calls us together around the table of the Lord, for this is our destiny and the destiny of the world: ever since time began it has been God’s intention that all people would be gathered into one – one family sharing life with God and with one another.
And so we gather for Eucharist to be a sign under which the scattered children of God may be gathered together.
To recall our sharing in the life of the Trinity we cross ourselves with holy water that reminds us of our Baptism.
To signal our shared life we greet each other warmly as we arrive.
We open ourselves to the presence of Christ already here among us.
By the action of the Spirit in and among us, God’s great in-gathering has indeed begun!
