Dinner Table

Will is full. He tips his chair back and plays with his fork. He burps, giggles and cracks a new knock, knock joke. It was not his favorite homemade meal lasagna that filled him with joy, peace and love. It was the body and blood of Christ.

"Lord's Supper" (Coena Domini), "Table of the Lord" (Mensa Domini), "Lord's Body" (Corpus Domini), and the "Holy of Holies" (Sanctissimum). In the early days of Christianity, it was referred to as a "Love Feast", or an agape meal.

Here is Will after Mass displaying his banner that Gram helped him make. Just look at the Elvis grin...we asked him what he wanted as a gift for his First Eucharist and he said, "I just want to be close to God." Well, Will I think you received your gift!
