Every week until my book comes out, I’ll share images around each of the 7 Catholic sacraments.
Follow me on Instagram at @thismessygrace or tag your photos with #everydaysacrament.
Let’s start seeing sacraments together…
Eucharist. Source and summit. Body and blood. Christ at the center.
I see it everywhere, this blessed-and-brokenness of the Christian faith. It’s in our daily rhythms of eating and sharing at table. It’s in our everyday actions of taking and breaking. It’s in our ordinary offerings of sacrificing in love for each other.
It’s in this bread my husband bakes for our family every week, too.
Every time I nurse the baby, I think of what it means to give of your self.
Eucharist can be hard. We break ourselves open to love. Eucharist can be easy. We reach out our hands to be nourished.
But at home? Eucharist is every day. Feeding our family and loving in the body and sacrificing for each other and thanking God who holds it all together.
For these thy gifts, which we are (always) about to receive.
Where do you see Eucharist in your life? What does this sacrament mean to you?
