Liturgical notes

Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb.

Order of the Mass, §132

With these words, taken from the mouth of St John the Baptist and the book of Apocalypse, we prepare for Communion. We are reminded of the gift that Christ has given to us by his paschal mystery: that he has given us a share in his divine life. As St Augustine says, ‘Christ became human so we may become divine.’ Our brothers and sisters in the Catholic Maronite Church take up this theme in their invitation to Communion: ‘Holy things for the holy people’. How blessed are we who are called to this supper.

‘Cry out with joy to God, all the earth; O sing to the glory of his name. O render him glorious praise, alleluia’

—entrance antiphon
