Mass in a Moment

By Margaret Bick


The Lord’s Prayer & The Sign of Peace


The Lord’s Prayer is one of the Church’s treasures.  Its reference to daily bread probably inspired the Church to place it within the communion rite.  The phrase, “Thy kingdom come,” recalls Jesus’ words, “I will never drink of this fruit of the vine until the day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”


How often do we consider the fact that these words are fulfilled in our celebration of Eucharist?  The petition to be forgiven as we forgive expresses our desire to enter into true communion with the risen Lord and with one another.


However, the sign of peace is the assembly’s clearest expression of its readiness for sharing in communion, the act that completes the sacramental action whose goal is the unity of the Church.
